A pair of Red-and-green Macaws (Ara chloropterus) flying inside a natural sinkhole in south-central Brazil. I shot this during one of my tours there. It always amazes me how fast and beautiful these birds fly. Their colors just pop out of the environment. They come to this place to nest on small caves at the vertical walls of the huge sinkhole. This photo was featured at a National Geographic book in 2010.
