Hyacinth Macaws Brazil

By Hazelmouse  
Another old picture from my trip to Brazil. As an endangered species we were lucky enough to see these around the hotel and were also taken to a roosting site. Stunning birds to see - large too.

Thanks for the comments on the Rook - I was lucky with the sun.

I looked at this then looked at my husband and said 'that's us'. He could even identify which one was him. Great character shot, but I would crop a bit above their heads - that centre rib is just a distraction, and the fewer competing light areas you have, the better.

Must agree re the cropping of the top of the imageSmile

They are top birds to watch

I do agree with both of you. Thanks for the comments, always appreciated.

I had vaguely thought about cropping but generally don't do much to these old photos - taken as JPEGS on a relatively low pixel count camera (300D)
