Tucan Bird by MrBlueSky1987 Tucan Bird by MrBlueSky1987
Tucan bird at the Cologne Zoo
The bird was behind a wire-mesh fence, so it was a bit difficult to get the bird on camera without a trace of the fence...
The light was great for this angle, plus the tucan looking in the right direction, I had to take a chance and hope that the bird didn't turn around. I succeeded! And I got the focus just right on the eye :)

The fact that you were able to get this shot through a fence on a moving target and focused directly on the eye is stunning. I love pictures of birds. Always beautiful and so full of life <3
