Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Selected for the final round of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition of 2014, this image was one of many I took specifically with the competition in mind. I wanted to show the integration of species into human environments and my local supermarket provided the perfect setting.

The starlings thrive in the car park, picking up scraps of food and picking off insects off cars as they arrive. The trolleys provide them with perches to preen themselves and safety from predators in the middle of a sea of trolley handles. When food is found, birds often dart under the trolleys to try and eat their meal in piece.

The birds are quite famous in local circles, particularly as the supermarket have invested in a loudspeaker system which plays bird of prey calls. The starlings ignore this.

The artwork is titled, numbered and signed on the front and back and supplied with an individual certificate of authenticity.
