  scarlet macaw in flight
by zrim

Such a burst of color and I believe that the scarlet macaw knows just how beautiful it is. After we landed the single prop planes on the beach in Corcovado, a squadron of scarlet macaws promptly did a flyover announcing their presence. They banked overhead letting the sunlight catch their beautiful feathers and they cawed gleefully down at us as if to say, "Welcome to paradise and now bow before our brilliant plumage."
