Ahoy!  Meet Sidney, my roomate Max Kuszaj’s evil, crazy (should be on Xanax or something), poop filled pet parrot.  I like to also refer to her as Satan’s little helper.    She hates people, especially me.  She like lurking, squawking, biting the shit out of everyone (especially me), pooping everywhere, doing one clawed chinups,  sliding flat down cage rails, pooping more, failed flight attempts with clipped wings and squawking a lot more.  These were a few more photos in a series of test shots with the Tamron 28-75 f2.8 LD XR Di SP lens with my backup Nikon D300 body.  I love the close focusing and the ability to still get a blown out depth of field at f8.
