Aceros corrugatus

or Sunda Wrinkled Hornbill (Aceros corrugatus) is a medium-sized hornbill which is a resident breeder in Malaysia and Indonesia. It was previously placed in the genus Rhyticeros with the other hornbills that have corrugations on their bills.

The Wrinkled Hornbill is around 70 cm long, and has a very powerful bill that is fused to the skull. It has mainly black plumage, a very colorful head, and a white or yellow tail. The male and female have different head and bill patterns. Males have blue skin around the eyes and bright yellow feathers around the head area and chest, which females do not have.

Hi Annick

A very beautiful portrait of this impressive bird - the hornbill.
The colors are simply lovely and the POV is excellent.
I read about the problems that you are facing in the Forum thread that you started but i didn't want to interveen at first since i have no experience with SLR cameras.
Now it's clear that the sharpness isn't flawless here, too nad i can see why you're a bit upset. Although i have only a compact cam, it also has a pretty powerfull zoom (432mm - 35 mmequiv) and also an IS. What i can tell you about the shaking effect on mine is that is is evident at shutter speeds of 1/50 or slower if the camera is handheld. Since i don't have an tripod yet, if i have to use these shutterspeeds i use other means of support for the camera or my arms, but usually i do everything i can to avoid it :)
I don't know if that helps, but since no SLR owner wrote anything to that thread, i said at least i should :)

Cheers and TFS

Hi Annick,
Colorful bird. Excellent sharpness with texture and fine details of plumage clearly seen. Very adorable picture. TFS.

Hi Annick.
Perfect colourful portrait of this amazing bird. I like everything at your picture: rich colours, great details and sharpness, impressive BG, exposure and contrast. Skilful work. My compliments.

Hi Annick,
Nice close up shot of this colorful hornbill. This bird look familiar to me. Well focused around the eye. Neat image. Increase in color contrast between bird's feathers and BG should make the main object stand out better.
Great shot.

Where can I start?
The blue/green eye shadow is so pretty on this fellow.
The yellow feathers contrast so well against the black ones.
That bill and horn look so unreal.
He's a beauty Annick, I love him!

Hello Annick,
Wonderful portrait of hornbill.I liked vivid colors,POV,catchlight in eyes,contrast between bird and BG,framing and composition a lot.

Hello Annick !
I love all of your portraits and this one makes no exception, I love this colorful bird ywith huge beak. Even if the focus is a bit soft, there are some good details and I think it is a great picture. The colors are wonderful and the composition is splendid. The bird stands out nicely on the dark BG. Very well done !

Hello Annik.

Excellent picture, nice composition and colors.
