[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I'm starting a new series called "Most Wanted of Nature" because the pictures that I'm going to present are "mugshots" of rare and threatened species..
So the first is the Blue-and-yellow Macaw (Ara ararauna)which is actually a least concerned specie... But the "mugshot" was great.

" Although very popular as pets because of their striking appearance and ability to talk, the price of a single bird may be in excess of (USD) $1,000-$2,000 in North America, and their large size makes domestication difficult. "

The level of detail on the face is nice. I look forward to the rest in your series.

Nice pose and the shallow DOF highlights the bird's head nicely.

It has that Clint Eastwood look saying,"Go Ahead, Make my day!"

Hi Everton,

A fantastic idea for a series! This is a great "mug shot" of the Macaw. They are beautiful and you did him justice with wonderful colors and excellent details. The face is marvelous - looks like he's talking to you.


Beau close-up, aux couleurs magnifiques.

Hola Everton.
Un retrato maravilloso, con una nitidez excepcional.
Perfectos detalles.
Saludos, JL.

Hello Everton,
Good start of the new series. The mugshot is very well captured in good details. The pattern around the eyes and the eyes itself making this bird looks rather fierce. I have one but haven't made it to the gallery yet.

Well done and I like it!

Hello Annick,

I just got here after the journey to your TN and TE. Still wonderful display of some awesome pictures.

Clever play with the camera with vivid beauty in the face. The blurry effect create curiosity of this gorgeous beauty. Well done!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Regards from Malaysia,
