I love aviaries. They offer a unique chance to get good pictures of species that are otherwise difficult to find and even more difficult to shoot. To get a shot like this in the wild I'd need to do a lot of reconnaissance and spend a few hours in a hide.

Photographically this is relatively easy. Avoid blown highlights, get down to as low as you can, relax and shoot.
