Angry Camera hog!

Anyone else get the feeling that there's just ONE bird in your flock that has to hog the camera ALL the time? I'm minding my own business trying to take a picture of the budgies (note the word "trying,") and Mochi runs in and spoils just about every picture that I take! Or she chases the budgies away, or does something to startle them into flying. I swear it's like she KNOWS I'm taking a picture, and she just HAS to be in it, one way or another. It's actually getting fairly ridiculous. I have to remind myself "there's no way she knows I'm taking a picture, there's just no way," but the more I take pictures of the budgies, the more it feels like she's doing it COMPLETELY on purpose. ! Maybe I shouldn't have entered her into Top Model.

</amused rant>

So does anyone else here have a camera hog bird? I'm semi-hoping I'm not alone in having an "I-must-be-in-every-picture-you-take" bird.

Oh Mochi just knows she's so photogentic! She is so beautiful, of course her picture needs to be taken all the time.

Aww she knows she's gorgeous and she wants to show the world!
I don't have a camera hugging bird.. I wish i did though, it'd be much more fun to take pics.

They may not be your whole world but they do make your world whole

Thanks Caroline for the super adorable siggy!

My linnie loves turning her eyes towards the camera. But my budgies only have eyes for each other.

Yep, my GCC is such a camera hog, he pushes the other birds out of the way to get in the shot , and blurs my pics. Here's 2 examples.
