Steem Pump and King Parrot

in #photofeed7 months ago (edited)

Wow what a 24 hours. Exchanges coming on board for the Hive airdrop and Steem has more than doubled to 26 cents! Going to be interesting to watch the next few days. Meanwhile the Australian government world travel ban announced yesterday has effectively cancelled my travel/health insurance (along with most other Australians traveling abroad). Interesting times.

I took this shot of a Male King Parrot (Alisterus scapularis) who was hanging around on our front deck at our property in the Wollombi Valley, NSW, Australia


If you would like to learn a little bit more about my background in photography you can read the interview @photofeed did with me here.

Really feels like it's "all" happening right this second isn't it x_x

Love the light making the feathers so shiny :)

Thanks. That's because it is "all" happening!

That parrots like...

"Strewth mate, I need toilet paper but can't get none. What's a parrot gotta do to get some TP around here?!"


Good picture mate. Poor parrot.

You're Australian? We get another bonus on top of steem doubling. That's the plummeting Australian dollar. So if you bought your steem at higher AUD prices, you get an added bonus if you sell now. I'm planning on dumping all my steem as soon as Hive goes live. Of course, the price will tank, but not as much for us Aussies. :)

Yes I am Australian; but i have been living in Canada for 3 years and then now been Sailing in the Caribbean since last November. So I am feeling the pain of the AUD ;-)

Governments are so sweet :)
See you around (hive - steem - both?)

I will be mainly active on hive; will probably cross post to Steem for a while as a lot of my photography audience will take a while to come over.

Same here. See you on the other side!
