This gallery contains 2 photos. One of the GVZ handlers was kind enough to bring this beautiful blue and gold macaw closer to my camera for a few closeups (the greenwing macaw under the other umbrella got a bit jealous and started cawm-plaining at the top of its voice). Photographed at the Greater Vancouver Zoo on September 14.
Of course, because I had hauled out the long lens on this day, it was getting almost as much attention as the animals themselves. The comments were flying from both other zoo visitors as well as the zoo employees.
