Pictures are great. We've been to Red Bank several and never had any luck. When we first came to Belize I said I wanted to see a jaguar in the wild, swim with the whale sharks, and see the scarlet macaws. I thought the macaws would be the easiest but I was wrong as we've seen the rest. When is the best time? Is mid February the best time? Also, what camera lens were you using?

i shot these with a 300 F4, on a body with a sensor that crops to 450.
