Parrot-Plettenberg Bay, South Africa

While visiting the beautiful South Africa, my husband and I were on a mission to see as many birds, animals, wildlife, and endangered species as possible. So, we traveled along South Africa’s Garden Route and visited a sanctuary called Birds of Eden in Plettenberg Bay. This sanctuary has some of the most colorful birds of our world. I captured this beautiful blue parrot as it stayed still basking in the warm sunlight. It’s color is so vibrant and full of life.
