Hello dear friends!
Today I went to our little zoo where I took this pic to show you one of the most beautiful brazilian bird: the " ARARAJUBA".
The golden parakeet is a parrot (order of birds including macaws, parrots and parakeets), which only occurs in northeastern of Brazil. Its name comes from the Tupi language and means "yellow macaw." The very restricted geographic distribution and the lush beauty and target the trafficking of animals, are factors contributing to the decline of populations of ararajuba in nature, which is threatened with extinction.

Hope you like it! it´s just for you !
All my love,

Hi Ana,
I like these warm colours. Of course I like this beautiful bird. Nice point of view. Great sharpness.
Congratulations for Your 2 years on TN!!!
Have a nice Sunday,

Goooooood day/evening friend aNa! How nice to see a bit more polished work from you these days!Hm ..hm ...hm! A superbly composed picture ...the yellow plumage of the parrot is well recorded despite the bright colors of the bird. In the same time the depth of field is gorgeous too! Hm ...not bad !

Hello aNa,
What a beautiful friendly looking bird - he seems really happy. His whole pose and position are just so pleasant to view. And, and, and...the composition with the leaves in the foreground is just beautiful too! Well done indeed!

Hello Ana,
really a lively bird with superb color. The yellow gives a stunning contrast to the blurry background. i like the way you leave the stretch of green leaves, and the beauty of the curving branch.
Exciting composition and very graphical view.
well done, Ana.
