Beautiful colors, Laurie.  Is this your parrot or one you saw on display?

When I see birds wearing such glorious colors as these, I know there is a power out there greater than I.  Wonderful picture!

Liz - Thanks! This is a macaw at the Central Florida Zoo in Sanford. I love to visit parrots, but I'm glad to let others take care of them!

Chris - She was posing so prettily, and chatting away -- mostly "Hello. Hello. Hello." Thanks for stopping by!

Myrl - Absolutely. God does good work, doesn't he? I'm glad I got to share it with you. Thanks for letting me know about the Photos group, BTW. I signed right up!

What a beautiful bird and photo.  She is so colorful and doesn't look camera shy either!!  Great shot!

Laurie - The colors on this bird are fantastic. I have many similar shots from the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Fl. Nature is good!

Yvette & Dennis - She was definintely not shy. We had a limited but lively conversation with her, and she was not hiding her beautiful plumage. I'm glad you enjoyed getting a look at her, too!

John - I love macaws' color combinations. It would seem that they are favorites for zoos, too. Thanks for commenting!

I love parrots and I definitely love zoos. I will have to visit the Central Florida zoo. We are close by. Have you ever been to the Lowry Park zoo here in Tampa?

Dick & Dixie - I love the Lowry Park Zoo! It's my all-time favorite. The Central Florida Zoo is much smaller, but they've worked hard over the past decade to make it a nice little place. I hope you get to visit soon, and thanks for stopping by here, as well!

What a beautiful bird she is!  Polly is a pretty birdie and obviously likes to pose for pictures!

Shannon - Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the photo!

Sharon - There were two macaws in the enclosure, and this one is the one who posed prettily, and who "talked" with us. I never cease to marvel at how beautiful they are! Thanks for stopping by!
