Interesting bird with interesting colours, very good light.

Hi Paul, on the 'cutie scale' you obviously have your work cut with this subject. However, it is a good clear shot with good contrasting background. It has a very powerful eye contact, I wonder how threatening it was? Regards Tim.

Great shot of this hornbill in the wild, Paul.
Good POV and sharp details.
The subject is well shown against the lighter colored dried grass.
A note about this interesting bird would be greatly appreciated.
