Adult Male Collarded Aracari (Pteroglossus torquatus)

Waiting around in one spot finally paid off as I was able to capture a nice run of images of the collared aracari, one of the 5 species of toucans of Costa Rica. 2 different families visited the location I was at.

Hello Paul,
I saw a pair of these gorgeous birds while at Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica, but never got the opportunity for a decent shot. They were nesting in a pretty high tree and gave us just little glimpses while staying hidden in the tree tops.
This is an exceptional capture showing us their beautiful plumages in awesome detail and stunning colors. Wonderfully framed and displaying perfect exposure. Great shot!!
