Thank you for this honor and congratulations to the winner! My name is Ulrich Brodde, I am German, living in Tenerife, Spain. This photo I made for the local zoo \\\"Loro Parque\\\". It has been made in the morning with the natural sun-light and the help of a bird-trainer. The photo (between 5 others) was used in size 2 m x 2,20 m for decoration in the show-room of the zoo. Used camera has been a Canon 1D Mark IV.
