On a trip to the Mayan Riviera, I went to a park called Xel Ha to do some snorkelling and sightseeing. I was captivated by these Macaws, their bright colours are such a contrast to their surroundings. I am fascinated by them and the way that they can almost seem human when you look into their eyes. They breed them and then release them into the wild and I was lucky enough to be present for a release. They were so loud, all squawking and screeching as 25 of them were being set free in a burst of colour. It was magnificent to watch them fill the sky and embrace their freedom.
