Ok, here is the picture
 
Here are some photo's of my latest budgies which I have talked about. The one is the one that may be a green grey violet opaline. However, sometimes this lense makes a blue hint on black, don't know why. I usually edit it out as I am a pro photographer as well, just starting out, which is why I can't afford a new better lens yet, anyway here they are so what do you think she really is?

My guess would be YF2 olive green opaline.

Ok better pics
 
This is in natural light w/ out the blue adding of the flash and lens which in some lights adds the blue cast, to grays whites and hard blacks. you must understand photography to understand this happens and its affects on the color of those colors I just mentioned. So saying that, you can see the tail is black, I also read recently grey greens can have deep blue/blackish tails so even if he did have that, he could still be grey green, also if she had violot mixed in that could account for any tail color, but again, these pictures show the true shade of her tail which is black.

hi there,

it does look like an olive, but with the black tail it could well be a greygreen violet opaline.

i do not have much experience with green violets so will wait and see what others say.

thanks, I am not trying to be difficult, but I am trying to decide who to breed who to of the two pairs. Eventually, I want to add grey. I found one, but I didn't need a female at the time. I also read to start w/ good foundation stalk first, then start breeding for other things, once the mattings are showing good offspring. One breeder said opaline is great w/ the other normal colors since it gives good size and color to the offspring and greys do that as well I guess. so I am starting w. green and blue pairs of different shades and the one opaline, but the opaline just seems different somehow and so does the lighter blue male I have.

I have read so much of colors looking one way and producing completely different colors and shades than expected so I am trying to arm myself w/ all of the facts I can for the pairings.

well, if it is a grey green then you already have the grey gene you were wanting.

I don't know....I still think it looks VERY olive to me. The problem is, that seeing a bird in a picture is NEVER EVER the same thing as seeing a bird in the flesh. I know I'm going to have the same issues when I ask about my birds....I have one that has a yellowy cream so light you can barely see it on the white, and I'm NOT a professional photographer :D

olive and greygreen can be very similar, but an olive would not have a black tail as that is a feature of the greygreen.
