What a Poser!

I took my family to a place called the Lazy 5 Ranch. It is a drive-thru feed the animals type zoo. They also have a picnic area and a few exhibits for after the ride. I found this Maccaw hanging out in one of the exhibits and started to take his picture. Slowly he rotated his head making sure that I got every angle possible. I think he enjoyed the photos as much as I did.

XTi w/18-55mm kit lens/shot @ 55mm, ISO400, F5.6-1/1600 from inside my living room.

Can anyone tell me how I can get better picture quality after I upload the picture to photobucket? The picture looks sooo much better on my PC then on photobucket. TIA
