    Way Cool! Love those Blue and Gold, and Scarlet Macaws in flight. And that Toucan - WOW!

    My GreenWing Macaw bit me 2 nights ago - 1st time he chomped me in 24 years. I covered him so he wouldn't fly away as I carried him in from an outdoor cage to his indoor cage. It scared him. Lucky I still have a thumb!

    I would say these are quite a bit better than o.k. All of these are very well done from the color right on through to the sharpness.

    I've got to say that the bill of the Toucan just doesn't fit the head. It kind of looks like the Toucan stuck his head inside of something doesn't it? :eek:  Your photograph is excellent though!
