2011 AZA Photo Contest

On The Cover
This caribbean flamingo image, the winning photo in AZA's 2011 Photo Contest, was taken by Ron Magill of Zoo Miami late in the afternoon immediately following a typical South Florida thunderstorm and at a time when Zoo Miami’s flock of flamingoes was displaying their peak breeding coloration. As the storm clouds parted, a warm ray of sunset light peeked through from the horizon just enough to illuminate this single individual and its stunning color which was reflected beautifully in the ripples on the water. Ron used a Nikon D3 body with a Nikon 200-400 AFS – VR f4 lens handheld.
