Scarlet Macaws are truly stunning birds.  Large and colorful, and with that imposing beak, they always draw attention.  Seeing a flock of them gathered at a clay lick in the Peruvian rain forest is a sight I will always cherish.

This particular bird happens to be a captive, which made it a little easier to get this portrait.  Shooting in the rain forest was challenging, as it was either dark or the shadows were harsh, and these guys move amazingly quickly.  But with the bright green out of focus background, it COULD be the rain forest.

I’ll photograph birds wherever I can find them.  And this one obliged me with a perfect pose.  I can’t complain….
