Hi Livio.
Wow, beautiful bright colours which you have exposed for very well with great detail. Great behaviour image. I would take a guess that it could be a parrot but don't know your birds over there. Our native pigeon over here eats whole kowhai flowers and new buds of the willow trees in one swallow. It's amazing how many they do go through when you sit and watch.
Wonderful image

Ola Livio,
Que linda foto, linda composicao e ponto de vista
o pequeno periquito parece estar com muita fome


Wonderful shot.

Hi Livio,
I think this beauty is some sort of parakeet (Small Parrot). I exactly don't know the ID. The capture is lovely. With Excellent composition and details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Sorry :D soon.

Hi Livio,
Brotogeris chiriri.

Hi Livio,
Now that is a colorful shot. Nice beautiful sunlight and vibrant color saturation. The detail is very sharp. The dramatic blue sky makes a stunning bacdrop for this scene.
Looks great!

Hi Livio,

Wonderful shot of this bird with the huge petal in his mouth! Very colorful with good details. His eye makes him look amazed at what he is doing. A real photo op.


hello Livio,
Amazing colors in your picture: the green, the blue and the yellow are so bright! And the picture is so clear! Great one!

Hello Livio,
Wonderful Brazilian clear colours. You know I like that very much. Wonderful blue BG. Great details and a wonderful moment. Yes I think Steve is right: a Yellow-chevroned Parakeet.

Olá Lívio,

Essa foto é de tirar o fôlego.Adorei a composição e as cores são simplesmente fantastica!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A nossa bandeira muito bem representada(amarelo,verde,azul)

Beautiful picture Livio, the colors are so vivid with nice contrast. You really got nice detail with acurate light reading, a real tricky shot but you pulled it off. I bet you have an ornithologist at your university that probably has a list of all native species of Brazil that can help you. :)

Very colorful Livio.
I've never seen this parrot eating a yellow flower on a bright blue BG either mf..
I guess that makes two of us :)
Composed well with great detail, DOF, and interesting light..
Well done & Have a nice weekend!

Helo Livio ! Yes the colors of Brazil ! :-) Very nice bird shot, great colors, very good exposure and great composition. thanks !


Hi Livios,
I like so much this luminous image!
The contrast made by the bright yellow and pure blue sky are just great.
And what timing you had to catch the bird while eating one petal of that flower.
A right exposure on a very good composition!
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Livio,
Amazing clarity of the colours!
Good point of view, making this amazing sky background...
The action of the bird is well captured and feeding on flowers is a new experience to me!
Pablo -

:-) OK-

Excellent photograph!!! The vivid colours make the picture look awesum.

Oi Lívio,
Que luz fantástica nessa foto magnífica.
Como o cookroller já identificou o pássaro, arrisco identificar as flores: ipezinho (Tecoma stans).
Minhas homenagens,

Hi Livio,

Nice pictures with great colours. Simpatico parrot. I like the composition.

All best regards, Cezar T.

Luz, composição, flores...tudo na mais perfeita harmonia.
