So I stopped at Subway today to get lunch and sitting there in the parking lot on the side mirror of a car was this beauty. I have never been so up close to a parrot before! I snapped picture after picture and he didn't budge. It was the coolest thing ever! By the way, according to the hubs, the bird nerd, it is properly called a Green-winged Macaw.
Great color and detail.
Wow! Great opportunity and great shot!
That is incredible! Great photo!
What a cool thing to see in the parking lot! He's beautiful!
Wonderful details and bokeh !
Absolutely beautiful, Misty! Such bright colors--love the shallow dof.
So pretty! And what in the world was he doing out there? Do you live outside of the US?
He is certainly colorful.What a beak!
Wow, good thing you had your camera along with you! I'm impressed that you carry it with you even when you go someplace like Subway. The color on this shot and your dof are lovely, and your detail is amazing, especially for full sun shot. Nice job!
beautiful shot of a beautiful bird. I love the texture in his beak
How neat! Where was his owner? ...or do you just live somewhere exotic? ;)
