This is post n° 400.
These two friendly fellows -they are always together- are sharing foodstuff.
Friendly and sharing...a bit like this community.
So I dedicate it to all the TrekNature members (no names)
just you!
...and further on I want to thank you all for the many critiques, comments, workshops, etc. concerning my photos. Thanks!
Finally I want to underscore I have the greatest respect for your work.

Blue and yellow Macaws...
They require much more effort and knowledge from owners than more traditional pets such as dogs or cats. They are intelligent and loving, so for someone who can provide for their needs, they make good companion animals. Blue and Yellows are know to their owners as more of a "one person" bird, and bond very closely to their owners.

Hoi Annick,
Van harte met alweer je 400st. Dat heb je wel erg snel gedaan. Je hebt zeker zeer veel mooie fotos laten zien waarin duidelijk je kwaliteit als fotograag zichtbaar is. Ik denk dat ik hier wel kan schrijven; Op naar de 1000.
Een foto van een mooi, bijna intiem moment. Belichting op de rechter vind ik iets minder.

Hi Annick,
Congratulations on your 400th post! Fabulous, as usual.
I am finally home and slowly getting over jet lag... trying to catch up on TN.
What a pleasure to find this wonderful shot.
The colors are brilliant, in all meanings of the word.
Great poses, and fantastic details.
Thank YOU for your 400 images. I have enjoyed and admired each and every one of them.
TFS. : )

Hi Annick, As a parrot fancier this is one of the best i have seen. A good note with it makes it very good indeed. Budgies are much happier with a buddie also. TFS. Murray.
