He posted this image and variations of it in the French newsgroup newsgroup
news://news.zoo-logique.org/3D.Pov-Ray. Search for a message by "Laf" posted
on August 13. He says that the flamingo is a 3DS model from a royalty-free
CD, converted with Poseray. One of the image variations shows a typical
POV-Ray bozo sky and the flamingo is seen in slightly different positions,
so there's no much doubt it's 100% POV-Ray.
