6th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
A Toucan on black.

"I just love birds. They have such great personalities," says Abbott, who visited the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. to photograph the animals. "The toucan really stood out, with those vivid colors and the large bill," she says. "I spent more time at his exhibit than any other in the zoo. He seemed to be posing just for me."
