Hi Francis,
A well captured full image with vibrant colors and interesting contrasts. Your quick reflexes has captured this joyful moment of the child.

Bom dia Francis,
We made use of the same animal, but there is a big difference between our entries. In you is the great protagonist of the boy. Already in my contribuition the principal actor's the "smiling" Parakeet Maracanã.

A great expression caught Francis Xavier, he appears both excited & cautious, not to sure what the parrot may do to him:-)
