Hi all,
Thanks very much for the nice C&C's for the last upload of
my Wild Orchid. Smile
Here's a rather random upload of a Blue & Gold Macaw ..
He's a character and an attraction at our local garden centre.
He's resident and not for sale. He likes to say 'hello', but we're
warned to keep back from that beak !
I took his pic and worked it to a new, b/g.
Thanks for looking.
Barbara Smile

A fine macaw portrait, Barbara, with a good sharp eye, and the background looks good, although it can't have been easy with those feathers.

Hi B,

Nice shot of the MaCaw, I always wanted one of these as they are very handy at Christmas for cracking nuts. Lovely birds. Well captured.
