|Parrots or Psittacines (order Psittaciformes) includes about 353 species of bird which are generally grouped into two families: the Cacatuidae or cockatoos, and the Psittacidae or true parrots. |
All members of the order have a characteristic curved beak shape with the upper mandible having slight mobility in the joint with the skull and a generally erect stance. All parrots are zygodactyl, having the four toes on each foot placed two at the front and two back.
Parrots can be found in most of the warm parts of the world.

A beautiful portrait of this parrot.The DOF is excellent ,The details are sharp as a tack.Lovely colours and nice blurred BG.TFS
very appealing, well composed portrait, taken with heart felt sympathy for the creature. If I am correct, "anima" means "soul" in Latin, and therefore "animal" stands for "creature with a soul" in its original meaning. This is to me what you are showing here in this marvellous animal portrait.
I love the softness in this portrait, and the subtle spectre of different hues of rich green in front of that neutral grey background.
With thanks and best regards,
