2011, Day 228 - Pirate's companion

Another parrot portrait, this time of a macaw.  I will readily admit that these birds are a little intimidating, not only are they large but they have beaks that exert enough force to open the toughest nuts so taking off a finger or two would be a breeze.  Add to that their propensity to be a little mouthy and to have strong feelings about people, both positive and negative, and you have a recipe for a hand like a shop teacher.  However, none of that detracts from the beauty of these animals.
