    Shot of some tropical bird im not quite sure if this is a parrot or some other bird. But I liked the shot. Gotta love the zoo for animal photographs.

    Looks like a parrot to me

    whatever it is, I love the colors, nice detail too

    Its funny, when you look at the birds eyes, you can see its still staring at you even while cleaning, or whatever he's doing to his wings.. :)

    But, since you were in a zoo.. wasn't there a sign that stated the species..?

    the zoo here has a big avary (sp?) with tons of different birds all free flying around, so there aren't any signs next to the birds cuz they are always moving around.

    great colours! and super exposure.. but it's a bit hard to make out the head shape.. do you have another with a more upright pose?

    nice picture...I think some macaws actually outlive their owners (120 year lifespan, avg. age of 70-ish years? talk about a commitment), and unfortunately smuggling these guys is still a big money-maker.
