Macaws in flight at a clay lick in the Amazon.
I was taking shots of these birds from pretty far away when the guy next to me noticed that we both had the same camera, so he offered and I quickly borrowed his 300mm zoom to take this shot. These Macaws were really skittish and every time they took off it would take another 30 minutes for them to land.
The clay neutralized the toxins in the seeds they would eat so coming to this clay lick was a necessary daily event for all the Macaws in the area.
