Bird Photo Competition 5 2012 : Entry Number 70

Judges Comment

Further evidence of the accessibility of great photographic subjects as this macaw's feathers are magnified to bring out a fascinating combination of color, texture, shape and line. The imperfections in the regular patterns draw the eye to all parts of the image.
