The hanami seasons is just starting, and already some green bandits can be seen feasting on the very first blossoms. At first I thought I had been lucky to catch these birds in action. I had never seen any of those around. After two minutes googling for their names, I found out that they were parakeets, and that they were actually “invading” many European countries as well, where the are considered as “invasive species”… so sad. But invasive or not, those birds remain quite nice to see, don’t they ?

Gear used: Nikon D810 + 135mm f/2 DC
