Amazing how they stay quite, hidden in the middle of leafs when feeding low on this ficus trees. Taken in November in a photo tour to the Atlantic forest of South east Brazil.

You did well to find this elusive bird-it is well camouflaged, but the red head gives it away. I really like the raised foot with, I presume. a fruit in it's claw. Makes me wonder if they feed themselves by plucking fruit with their feet. Nice job!

A nice shot of this parrot in its natural habitat. The red patch on its head is a great accent.

A lovely capture of this beauty in its natural habitat, Guilherme! I love the bright eye detail.
