Very good clarity,details and colors of yours picture.
Nice bird and interesting position to capture it.
Great to see a post from you again!! I expect you've been out and about! How fantastic to visit Manu, I hope you'll show us more from this trip! A really fine view of this beautiful bird in a lovely pose. Grat sharpness, beautiful natural colours and a fine green and soft background too. It reminds me a bit of the Senegal Coucal!
Many thanks and God fortsättning!! Cheers, Ulla

What a wonderful photo from you, Ralf! This is truly spectacular and some day I hope to go there too. Perfect for my eyes!
I really hope you will start posting here again. I have also been really doing to few posts during 2009 and have promised myself to improve that in 2010... ;o)
Gott Nytt år!

A superb portrait of the Black-capped Donacobius. The pose is great and shows its features from an ideal POV. This photo is perfect in every way and makes a great portrait of this species.
What an amazing trip you must have had in Peru!
Nice to see this and you back on TN!

It's so good to see you again!! A fantastic bird to mark your return. I have not seen this beauty from Peru before. I am fascinated by his amazing eyes which jump out from the dark feathers. His plumage is beautiful. Excellent colors, details, setting and composition. I wish you a healthy and happy New Year.

This is a fantastic POV shot. It looks like the bird posed for you, a great composition, and the BG is good even though the whole bird is in focus. Looks like the picture was taken in shadow but you did very good processing of the image. Great shot.
