Amazona aestiva

- pictured at birdpark, Heiligenkirchen, North-Rhine-Westfalia -

The Blue-fronted Amazon (Amazona aestiva), also called the Turquoise-fronted Amazon and Blue-fronted Parrot, is a species of a parrot and one of the most common parrots kept in captivity as a pet. Its name derives from the distinctive blue marking over its beak. The range of the Blue-fronted Amazon extends over Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay and northern Argentina. Their talking ability is ranked third among birds when compared to African Grey Parrots or Yellow-naped Parrots. Males tend to be slightly more aggressive.

Nice photo Heinz,
I would say that you have to much light in the shot, but on the other sides it give a fine effect all that light, the composition is nice,the pov is good and dof is nice, good job.

Hello Heinz ;-)
What a nice portrait!
Superb scene and colours... just fantasctic!

Hey Heinz,

What a good image. Nice and sharp. It looks like the light was difficult to work with, but you handled it very well.

Hello Heinz

Very close with good details. As Erich (Za Kiwi) has said, it does look like you had difficult light, but well done on the result. Nice work. Thanks.

He's a nice sharp beautifully coloured parrot, Heinz. Well composed and I love his action of scratching his face. The BG is a bit too bright in places, but I think his coloured feathers make up for that. Well done, and TFS.

I like the tight composition on this and the details are nice. Maybe a little PP work needed like more contrast and darkening of the BG. 5/10 Well done Heinz.
