Kirby the Elf

He's busy helping Santa get packages ready for Christmas delivery. Okay, no he's not. He's busy taking everything back out of the boxes every chance he gets.
OMG - this is a fabulous shot - you certainly nailed this one !!! This could not be cuter - just love it !!

How did you ever get that hat on him - love the expression out of the side of his eye - it's priceless! The whole color scheme is wonderful.

Such a cute capture of Kirby! I thought Harley was a good model but Kirby has out done himself! Love it! Fav

Kirby on the Shelf?

What a beautiful bird...luv his cute hat. Fav
December 9th, 2014  
OMG this is ADORABLE!
Kirby has the cutest expression, he matches the presents and the christmas colors.
December 9th, 2014  
Instant Fabulous Fav! So adorable!
December 9th, 2014  
so cute and fun... wonderful and unusual Christmas photo! fav
December 9th, 2014  
This is so cute I can hardly stand it! He wears that hat so well! Fav
December 9th, 2014  
Oh, this is perfect!
December 9th, 2014  
Aw…such a cute shot! Did you make the Elf hat? I like you said he is taking everything back out of the boxes. You must be busy to them back to the box!

@emiko I did make the little elf hat, Emiko. Truth be told, he's not actually wearing it; I photoshopped it onto his head. He would've never left the bells alone.

@milaniet I cheated and put the hat on post-photo session. Just the sight of it setting on the table beside the boxes had Kirby zooming off across the room so I knew I'd never get it near his head for the picture.

I was about to go overboard in my praise and favs but read your comment just in time. Now I don't know what to do with this shot. :-(

A fav, I guess, for you photoshop skills might be the best way out for me.
December 9th, 2014  
@terryliv Only the hat is PS'd, I promise. Kirby was very willing to pose on the boxes. It took me longer to make the elf hat than to create the picture.
December 9th, 2014  
Love the red and green and whichever way you got the hat on Kirby, its still cute.
December 9th, 2014  
How gorgeous - great for a laugh - fav.
December 9th, 2014  
How cute! Kirby is the perfect name.
December 9th, 2014  
What a cute parrot and. Lovely little hat. Very nice capture.

Those diabolical little elves will keep you always laughing while turning your gift wrapping inside out! It's hard to see them in the act as there're a festive red & green and blend in so magnificently! Send him around on Christmas morning to help my 4-y-o grandson unwrap all his little brother's presents! (On second thought, Ashton really needs no help as he's a bit of a diabolical little elf himself, though he comes with neutral coloration...)

(Oh dear...do you think I could use some sleep? Good Grief! ...---But that's A Charlie Brown Christmas"....)

OMG this is the cutest thing ever! FAV! Reminds me of our first parakeet Frisky so thanks for the memories!
December 9th, 2014  
Fantastic capture of Kirby - really into the Christmas spirit :)
December 9th, 2014  
@lyndemc I shouldn't have left my comment at that. I think it is brilliant. Love the way his eye is looking upwards towards the cap - that isn't there.
December 9th, 2014  
That is so cute, Fantastic shot and your photoshopping is perfect, well done. fav
December 9th, 2014  
Great xmas card shot.... well done with the processing... fav
December 9th, 2014  
Very clever indeed Denise - both conception and execution are perfect... I would never have guessed that the hat was photoshopped in, you've been careful to blend it in skilfully. A Fav for the total production.
December 9th, 2014  
Cute capture and great colours as well as processing. Fav
December 9th, 2014  
Very amusing.
December 9th, 2014  
Excellent. Great colours and what a helpful bird! Wonderful composition.
December 9th, 2014  
Fav, I love the reds and greens. This is so cute. Love the hat too.
December 9th, 2014  
This is a wonderful shot = Fav
December 9th, 2014  
awww that is so cute!
December 9th, 2014  
This is great, so cute!
December 9th, 2014  
Fantastic!!!!! Animals are seldom helpful when we are doing things. Usually either busy undoing or simply distracting in their cuteness which requires us to stop and talk to them or pet them. Love this cheeky bird. Great shot! Fav.
December 9th, 2014  
Now Kirby is one patient bird, love it. As usual not just a simple picture of the bird but another great composition with the parcels i the background.
December 9th, 2014  
Kirby, you are a very cute elf! I like your hat and I like that there are gifts all around you that match your green color!
December 10th, 2014  
Fabulous!!!!!
December 10th, 2014  
How come this didn't make the PP?
December 10th, 2014  
Pam
Ha ha! Kirby is adorable!!

Kirby sounds like an adorable devil for sure! I can't believe he let you put the elf hat on him - haha, PS works too. Cassie would never stand for such shenanigans either. Such a fun shot.
December 11th, 2014  
Adorable. Love that his color matches the presents
December 11th, 2014  
@terryliv We're only allowed a certain number??? You all have granted me so many PP in the past, it's now time to share that spotlight with others.
December 11th, 2014  
Hope he enjoyed it!
December 12th, 2014  
LOL what a great expression.
December 14th, 2014  
Denise you are not only a wonderful photographer but a great story teller to go along with your photos. I love his hat. Where did you find a hat to fit a bird?
