[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From my recent vacation in Mexico.

The keel-billed toucan (Ramphastos sulfuratus), also known as sulfur-breasted toucan or rainbow-billed toucan, is a colorful Latin American member of the toucan family. It is the national bird of Belize.
Including its bill, the keel-billed toucan ranges in length from around 42 to 55 cm (17 to 22 in).[3] Their large and colorful bill averages around 1215 cm (4.75.9 in), about one-third of its length. It typically weighs about 380500 g (1318 oz).[4] While the bill seems large and cumbersome, it is in fact a spongy, hollow bone covered in keratin, a very light and hard protein.

Hello Mario,
Splendid capture of this beautiful bird.
Thanks for the share,

Hi Mario,
great capture, great work. Amazingly clear, sharp and well lighted details all over from the beak right down to the tail, delightfully fresh natural colours, perfect composition. A truly eye-catching image, extraordinary.
Thank you! With best regards,
