CommentI have chosen this image for the best of 2019 as I love so many things about it. The connection the bird has with the camera (and I feel the bird is smiling at me), the detail in the feathers and around the eye and beak, the beautiful shades of green to the yellow hue of the feathers and the complementary background. I also love the lighting, that is backlit from the upper right. I love King Parrots and I feel the females are often overlooked but are equally as stunning as their male counterparts.
