    An oldish Egret and Macaw

    So these are both older digital pieces I've done and I felt like they're nice enough to share :giggle: Thinking of doing a new series with some songbirds I've been seeing on my trips lately, but we'll see how that goes haha

We saw this on three occasions at different locations, every time fairly early in the morning...

    *The* iconic bird species of the Pantanal. Aguape allowed for excellent observations of this species since there was a pair working on a nest cavity right outside reception, next to a path.
