This is just funny and worthy of a bump to seven seven though its relation to the challenge is a tad remote. lol

Funny! And, of course, beautiful plumage on the Norwegian Blue.

Very nice pic. Where is the camouflage?

Hahaha, this makes me smile. I love Macaws, they are so personalble and sweet yet at the same time like having a 3 year old forever, LOL:)

This is a wonderful shot, as far as meeting the challenge, that's a bit of a push IMO, so we will so strictly on the shot itself. I like the composure of the shot, and even though the branch is leaning from one side to the other, a little pet peeve that might normally drive me bonkers, ;-), it works for this shot because the wing also leads right up. The expression in their eyes is wonderful and the lighting is well done. That branch looks like it's ready to break though, should be interesting when it does! THe colors are also great but could take just a tweak to really make them pop out at you, these birds are so colorful in real life and it's hard to express that on screen at times. The crop on the sides works well since each bird had a little bit of feather cut off so overall, very nicely done, a 7

Humorous and a good picture (well composed, good exposure, contrast, etc), but face it, this is *not* camouflage!

Great capture. I don't think they're camouflaged, though. It would work if the background was the same colors as the birds. Very crisp detail.

Makes me chuckle - great caption. Sorry about the lack of camouflage - if only you'd had a handy multi-coloured backdrop!

Funny!!! I always wondered into what background macaws blended, now its obvious, each other.
