Red-and-green macaws in flight taken in Chapada dos Guimaraes, Brazil in July 2010 using a Canon EOS-7D and 100-400mm. I had watched these amazing birds from a distance and had given up on getting any photos – having looked away for a minute, I turned around and there were two macaws flying straight at me! I only managed three photos, and this is the only one that was in focus

  • I had been leading birding trips to Chapada dos Guimaraes, for already 32 years. Chapada dos Guimaraes is a perfect combinations with the Pantanal and Serra das Araras, where there is an active nesting site for Harpy Eagles!
