Orange Breasted Trogon (Female)

Taken last weekend in the hills this one was hungry and did not bother too much about my presence. Trogons are shy quiet birds and sit rather still until they get hungry!

This one came within my MFD and fortunately I had my extension tube on otherwise this shot would not have materialised.

Ouaaahhh Phil !
Great shot really of this one with the grasshopper. Not the kind you're lucky to have in front of you everyday
Perfect sharpness, colors, dynamics, light ...
I feel it could have a tad more contrast or color accentuation
