Hola Ricardo,
Muy buen acercamiento de este pájaro!
Lograste excelentes detalles, muy nítidos, en toda el ave y en especial de su plumaje.
Con la buena iluminación obtenida conseguiste reflejar muy bien los hermosos colores de este perico.
Son muy buenos los detalles de la textura en el pico y del ojo rojo.
Me gusta mucho también la composición y la presencia del sujeto sobre el fondo.
Felicitaciones por la foto y gracias por compartirla.
Un gran abrazo,

Up close and beautiful :)
lovely shot Ricardo,
nice bokah and nice colours of the B/G,
I feel its silghtly high on contrast (prob. just my monitor)
Cheers :D

I have owned a double yellow head in Canada. They are GREAT talkers besides being BEAUTIFUL. But, just like any Amazon parrot, they are EXTREMELY NOISEY.
This register of yours is truley GREAT.
Love the details of colours captured.
Very well presented composition.
Best regards, Mario from Canada.

Hello Ricardo,

Well I have not seen you post lately and this awesome close-up of the yellow head that caught my eye. I was just about to post one, but I thought I'll wait a bit. Well done. :)

Oh, this is a very colourful parrot Ricardo. You have picked up incredible detail in this portrait of yours. The eye is great, but the beak and feather detail even are outstanding.

Thanks, John
