14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

The photograph of this Blue-and-Yellow Macaw was taken at the Santa Barbara Zoo. I was able to find a great angle, one where the late afternoon sunlight created beautiful, dramatic shadows, while isolating the Macaw against a dark background.
