[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Blue-and-yellow Macaw also known as the Blue-and-gold Macaw, is a member of the group of large Neotropical parrots known as macaws. It breeds in forest and woodland of tropical South America from Trinidad and Venezuela south to south Brazil, Bolivia, and Paraguay. It extends slightly into Central America, where it is restricted to Panama. It is an endangered species in Trinidad, and is on the verge of being extirpated from Paraguay, but still remains widespread and fairly common in a large part of mainland South America. There is also a breeding population in Miami-Dade County, USA. It is therefore listed as Least Concern by BirdLife International.

The picture was taken at Singapore Zoo.

Hi Sujoy.
Thanks for kind comments and an opportunity to meet your gallery too.
You have pictured this cute bird very well. Details and colours of the image are very good. Despite the difficult for shooting BG your lens have done a nice job and blurriness of the BG is excellent. May be vertical orientation of the shot would be better a bit but I did not see original scene. I am next to you only at gallery now :). My kind regards and TFS.
