I took this (poor) picture years ago on film and have just rescued it.
Only putting it up today because I like the colours.
... and his beak!

He was in a wire mesh cage.
There was wire between me and the bird but (amazingly) I managed to zone out the wire with dof.
Probably could never do it again!

I'm hanging onto the nuts for now, Colleen.

A powerful looking beak and large bird - pity to be cooped up in a cage.
Well done (trying not to say capturing!) photographing him through the bars.

I used to have a macaw, but he started eating the house and the furniture, so I had to give him away. Not sure if he went on to eat anyone else's house, but he had a murderous bite on him! He was never caged, he just didn't think he could fly so he didn't bother!
