I thought I would add a splash of color with this photograph of a macaw. Its brightly colored feathers gave me the impression of a painting where the painter swabs globs of rainbow colors to a side of the painting to grab some interest. In the same waym this macaw did just that. Even though the background was brightly lit because it was such a sunny day, Its plumage drew my interest as it buried its beak into its feathers grooming itself.
Where I come from we have parrots. We don’t have macaws though as these species seem more a native of South America. However, it was nice to find a little reminder of the tropical nature of home at the zoo. Now, the only thing left to make it feel completely like home is a dense, damp, evergreen rainforest.
