[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This bird was photographed during an open flight demonstration at The Adelaide Zoo, Adelaide, South Australia. The bird was obtained when bird smugglers were caught smuggling him onto Adelaide. He performs an open flight display daily at the zoo.

This shot was taken in portrait mode, to maximise focus on the subject by blurring the background.

Hello Mark
This is a fantastic shot to start at TN. How beautiful this Macaw and how rich in colors. I like a lot the framing, excellent focus, very good depth of field and lovely composition.
Wellcome and thank you very much for sharing.
Best regards
