On Green-winged Macaw in the Parrots challenge (6 comments in total)

I was mostly inside different hides during the time of photographing the wildlife of Manu. This hide was located close to the river bank (round 15m above the ground) where many different kind of parrots and other kind of birds were looking for clay (rich in minerals) which they used as the part of their diet. The hide was't so close and even 800mm wasn't long enough to get perfect distance. This shot was heavily (50%) cropped and the rest you can see presented here. I didn't aded or removed anything from the photo and nothing was artificial or manipulated here. I cant remember if I did any special technique on this one...
Regards / Ralf
