Our time seeing and shooting the Scarlet Macaws on the beach, with the sun and ocean to our back, frequently with blue skies in front, was definitely one of the most exciting times during this trip. In this particular shot, while I wouldn't have minded if the macaw's head was visible, there is still something I like about the fanned out appearance of its wings.
