    Hi, I am putting together a small publication at Phaneromenis70 (arts centre) in Nicosia and we were wondering if you would allow us to use the photos of this bird? We will of course state that you are the photographer of these photos inside the publication.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,
    Iris Pissaride
