Hola Jose,<

Wonderful picture of these 2 parrots... Colors are just wonderful and the details on the feathers, just amazing!!! The only thing is that maybe you cropped too much the parrots...

Great pic and TFS,


Jose Miguel,
I love parrots. I own a few. They speak English & Portuguese very well; and the best part is that they are free, TOTALLY, to go & return to roost.
This photo is truely MAGNIFICIENT in all aspects of
Very well captured & presented. Well done.
Best regards, Mario.

Hi José,
Absolutely stunning! Colours, sharpness, crop - technically great. The moment you captured - wonderful.

Hi JM,
What a nice moment you have captured here. The colors of feathers are superb, a pleasure for eyes.

Well seen and well done.


Hola, José Miguel. Buena composición con la cariñosa interacción entre los pericos. Buena intensidad de los colores y excelente nitidez que permite apreciar los detalles del plumaje. Coincido con el comentario que dice que un buen marco resaltaría aún más tu toma, quizás uno negro. Coloco la foto entre mis favoritas. Saludos, Yvonne

Hi Jose, this is an excellent composition of these two Amazons. You have pulled it all together with very good colour and detail. The half closed eye of second bird shows what he thinks of this activity.

Thanks, John

Hi Jose. Excellent capture of these two brightly coloured preening birds. They are similar to some species we have here in Australia. Very good clarity and colour. Marvellous. Murray.

Hi Jose.
What a lovely story you have pictured (and what a nice story of love you have told). Amazing scene, fantastic reflection of plumage, their colours, details and texture. But seems to me that you stir to one of lovers, and it is not so glad to your "business". Superb done. BRAVO and TFS.

Hello José,
Nice close up on this couple. The action here says a lot. This is a perfect picture for the coming Valentine's day.

Your portrait of these colorful birds not only shows their playful side, but their dexterity. They create quite and yin-yang symmetry with their flexibility on display. Wonderful detail. Well done

Very intimate and cute closeup Jose, I like it. Very good color, detail, POV, and exposure. The look of love is in their eyes :) Well done!

Hello Jose,
You would want to call these two "love birds" with all this intimacy going on. Beautiful composition, color and clarity! Love is in the air!

Take care,

very beautiful shot of the parrot. Love;ly and lively.
The colours are fine and the feathers are well detailed. the cropping also allow better emphasis on the bird.
A nicely composed shot.
