Green is the New Red! - Alexandrine Parakeets

Dig and play! - Alexandrine Parakeets
I am an amateur photographer and always look for opportunities to portray birds and their lives through images. On a beautiful, bright January morning, in the campus of University of Hyderabad, Hyderabad, India, I spotted a parrot-couple.
They perched themselves on a rusted pole and began immersing within each other. The way they played and fondled, exuded such an innocent, vibrant and pure form of energy. The parrots would at times stare at me wondering what I was up to with a strange looking object in my hand. But they carried on. Their uninhibited expression of passion, freedom and joy made me conclude that not red but green was the colour of love!
