SCARLET MACAW, ARANJUEZ, PUNTARENAS, COSTA RICA, JANUARY 23, 2014
Pentax 55-300 at 190mm
1/250 sec. f8
This glorious bird was spotted at a sanctuary devoted to scarlet macaws near the Costa Rican Pacific coast. Macaws are raised and rehabilitated in huge cages, then released into the wild, and many of them return to the sanctuary to hang out all day with their chums.
