[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Scarlet Macaw (Ara macao) is a large parrot found in the tropical rain forests of Central and South America. It lives in the canopy and in the tops of the very highest trees. Unfortunately, Scarlet Macaws are endangered species due to their capture as pets, and, of course, loss of their habitat. These birds can fly at speeds up to 56 km per hour (35 mph), often flying in pairs or small groups. In captivity, Scarlet Macaws have a life up to 80 years.

Hello Jose,
For me Brazil is a paradise for birding. This Macaw is familiar to me since a month. (Pantanal) You made a perfect portrait. Wonderful colours and details. Great BG, eye-contact and composition.
