Another bird and bokeh... zzzzzzzZzzZzZzZzZzz.... :)

There are many birds and bokeh and many parrots in general, probably because they are so colorful, but I want to see how this does in the challenge and hopefully learn something along the way.

Nice crisp focus on the Macaw and great bokeh affect in the background. The greens in the background compliment the colors of the bird very nicely. The dark shadows in the back seem to make an outline of a larger bird with a closed eye. Guess the bird must have been tired. The lines of his eye seem to flow perfectly with the black lines of his face. Lighting is very good in my opinion. Great job and I hope this does well.
