Parakeets of Sri Vaikundam!!!

Remember that mandapam you've been seeing in the last 2 posts (here & here). As I went around it, clicking its sculptures, I was stopped by the sound of parrots. Atop a couple of coconut trees there, were these gorgeous parrots. I clicked some. Then I stopped. Changed my lens, so I could zoom in well on those beauties and continued. I totally lost track of time and my friends had left the temple and the temple was closing down!!! Since I was missing, friends called me and only then did I realize the time lapse!!!

  1. nice parakeets. What zoom lens did you use?

  2. Lovely place to visit. These are parakeets, Alexandrine Parakeets to be precise. India doesn't have parrots.

    1. Yeah, that's correct! Thanks for pointing out...
