this guy is a little crazy and I love it. This red eye, the feathers like a crown and it seems to smile ;-)
I also like the colours very much, thanks, excellent shot.

Hi frog dude
(Huh?) True facts…This Inca warrior just blinked an eye for me. The authentic, life-like
representation coupled with the shear incredible visual impact of this shot probably made
me see strange things. I did not indulge in any "medicinal" or "ceremonial" substance, but
I am utterly convinced this bird in going to climb right out of my screen and drop a splodge
on my keyboard. Any moment now.
This is mouth-watering stuff my friend. It is exactly this reason why I am still peed-off
for the circumstances that made you obliterate your entire portfolio. Maybe I shouldn't
remind you about it, but the truth is that the bitter taste of discontent still lingers strong.
The recipe: Take one astonishingly beautiful bird, place it in a picturesque and isolated
environment, apply one measure of Nikon D300, and then combine 200-400mm of Nikkor
glass into the mix. Blend an abundantly qualified expert into the composition and let it
simmer at an "unknown" level of aperture and exposure. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy
the delicious result. No need for any further additives.
Excellent work MF and TFS.

How did I miss this one?
This shot is absolutely amazing! This guy looks like he came straight out of Jurassic Park.
I think he was putting the moves on you, Paul.
Those feathers sticking up, that coy look with the head slightly tilted... Oh my!
Excellent capture, as usual.
Thanks for sharing this beauty.

A spectacular and brilliantly colored bird. It reminds me of a Archaeopteryx. I love to see these species that live deep in the jungle. Places I may never get to. Really nice portrait.
