Hi -- I'm Peachy!


I'm gonna be the coordinator of the June 2013 Budgie of the Month Competition 'cause all the birdies of the FaeryBee Flock get to have a turn!

It's VERY important that everyone who submits a picture of their budgie follows the Talk Budgies Forum Site Guidelines http://talkbudgies.com/rules.php

And, before you submit any pictures you gotta READ the BOTM Rules & Regulations

I'm tellin' ya - the Budgie of the Month (BOTM) Contest is very easy to participate in.

I hope you love your budgie enough to enter him or her as a contestant in my contest. :proud:

ALL Talk Budgies Members are welcome to enter a budgie.

Only ONE photo per member is allowed.

Please Post your photo in this thread and be sure to include your budgie's name and your suggestion for an upcoming BOTM challenge.

Oh yeah, my Mom says If you enter your budgie - you MUST also VOTE.

I'm :jumping: choosing this month's challenge.


The Challenge for June 2013 is:

YAWNING BUDGIES

I'm not a budgie but I'm gonna show you how to yawn -- do it like this!

Deadline:
The contest opens today and will close for entries on June 23rd.

When the contest closes for entries, I'll ask every Talk Budgie Member to send in your vote for this month.

Remember -- If you enter your budgie, you gotta vote too!

The winner of the contest will receive 50 karma points and be entered automatically into the Budgie of the Year Contest.

^^ Ares: "HEY! HEY YOU! YES! YOU! I'M TALKING TO YOU! DON'T WALK AWAY FROM ME!"

What a beautiful photo, Kat! must get some camera information from you sometime as I'm considering getting a new digital camera wiht a bit more macro capability..

Wiki (it's either a yawn, or the high notes in "Bohemian Rhapsody"):


Yawning by Wikibudgie, on Flickr

(Next month's suggestion: Budgies as Birds of Prey! They could be feasting on a vicious carrot, hunting sprouts as a pack, or perching up high ready to swoop on an unsuspecting head! Must come with your best David Attenborough caption to go with it..)

Awesome pics. This capturing a yawn is as hard as getting the perfect flying shot. Any tips? :D

I submit Tito Junior for this month's competition ( the green/yellow budgie on the right). Tito Junior is yawning in synch with his big brother Berlin.



Suggestion for next month's contest: Wet budgies

Yawning? Ho boy, looks like I really will have to get the camera out in the aviary tomorrow!

But which birdie will I be able to catch in the act? Hmmm....

haha thank you Annmarie :D

That photo was a few weeks ago and i caught the yawn completely by accident too, i was trying to catch him staring out the window, it looked like a really good pose.

Unfortunately i don't actually have a macro lens yet, but i am hoping to get one in the future, i was using my standard lens at the time, i just needed a really really steady hand and some luck haha

Hey guys, these are Excellent Entries!!

Remember to include a suggestion as a possibility for an upcoming BOTM challenge with your entry.
We like seeing suggestions. ;)

Oh yeah, I guess I should say that all BOTM challenges aren't necessarily going to be something easy!
We think challenges should be challenging -- don't you!? :laughing1:
