Jun.BBC Wildlife No. 07 Vol. 41

THE COVER This red-and-green macaw (Ara chloropterus), also known as a green-winged macaw, was taken by award-winning photographer Nick Garbutt. “Their movement is rapid and it is difficult to follow and keep them in focus,” says Nick. “I concentrated on tracking macaws as they banked and turned back towards me.” This shot was taken using a Nikon D5, Nikon 200-400mm, 1/800th at f 5.6, ISO 2500.
