Just hard to compete with pink fuzzy birds. Only pink birds here are plastic flamingos in peoples yards.

Rain drops are really hard to capture with a camera.

Really difficult. If I look at M-5's pic he must have been having a good downpour at the time.

Oh come on, she was having a shower! She's an Australian Rose Breasted Cockatoo or Galah. There are lots here as pets. I inherited her.
Showers are hard to see in pictures.
Great photos everyone, this was fun. :)
