‘CAPTION THIS PHOTO’ CONTEST ~ HAVE FUN!!!

GREEN RUMPED PARROTSWhat does the photo BELOW say to you?
Pictured here is National Geographic grantee Karl Berg
holding a young parrotlet, a New World parrot species.
How would you caption this photo?

PARROT

I just received the above photo of Karl Berg (taken by Soraya Delgado) and the information below in an e-mail from National Geographic, announcing a fun new contest – “Caption This Photo Contest” open until midnight Wednesday, July 31st.

Hi,

A picture can often be worth a thousand words, but a photo with a great caption can help us see an image – and often the world – in a whole new way.
Share your caption for the photo above and you could be our July Caption This Photo Contest winner.
If your entry is selected, your caption will be shared with National Geographic supporters in our August email.
So what does this photo say to you? Don’t be afraid to be creative.
It’s easy to enter. Simply submit your caption before our deadline – midnight, Wednesday, July 31st. Only one entry per person please.
Pictured here is National Geographic grantee Karl Berg holding a young parrotlet, a New World parrot species. Dr. Berg is studying communication among green-rumped parrots in Venezuela.
He and his team have recently discovered that parrot parents use slight variations in their calls for each of their offspring. Baby parrotlets appear to recognize the specific calls designated for them.
But don’t limit yourself to what is actually depicted in the photo. There are no limits to what direction your caption can take.
Also, don’t delay. You only have a few days to enter your caption before the July 31st deadline.
And if you don’t want to submit a caption, but want to read the winning caption, just sign up here.
Thank you for making it possible for groundbreaking researchers like Dr. Berg to make important discoveries about wildlife communication and enabling us to share inspiring photos with you.
Sincerely,
Nancy Rehman
Vice President, Development

The first pic is my entry, the last 4 belong to me also, used as filler. All credit goes to the respective photographers who have captured superb moments in time with some of Canada’s most beautiful & interesting critters. So many more wonderful pictures to be seen on the competition site.”
