In the thick mist and the deafening sound of the wind of the southern Alps of New Zealand two kea come to rest at Alexander’s feet. It was then that he quickly had to change his telephoto lens to a short focal length. Described as the only mountain parrot in the world and one of the smartest birds ever, he was fortunate enough to encounter a group of kea at an altitude of nearly 2,000 meters. When the fog lifted, he measured how lucky these endemic birds of Middle-earth were to be able to photograph them so closely against such an epic setting and to experience their unfailing sociability and curiosity.
