Scarlet Macaws in the Mist
These scarlet macaws were flying from tree to tree feeding on almonds. They were shrouded in a fine mist that blew in from the Pacific Ocean and sparkled in the sunlight. This is an uncropped, full frame photo. Look closely and you will see 5 macaws.

Thanks everyone! I, too, think it looks like a painting. How often in photography do you get the birds placed like that? It's an uncropped image with no bird is at the center focus area.
