Always difficult to fathom what a parrot has in mind . . but this one looks to be chewing over bokeh via near:far DOF ratios . . Gotta love that look !

Incredible focus on this guy. I love the eye - so bright, so intense. I did a few shots of a scarlet version of macaws awhile back. They really are gorgeous birds.
