[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While walking deep in the jungle, getting bit, and constantly swatting at mosquito I was unable to produce a decent photo. It wasn't until I was simply walking along the road I came across this beautiful Gartered Trogon sitting on a wire.

Hello Jonathan, and welcome to TN.
I have never been to your Mexico, but I am aware of the beautiful natural sights and interesting animals they have there. It is a pleasure to view this colorful Gartered Trogon you eventually met while traveling along the roadway.
It's plumage is certainly colorful, I especially like the bright yellow eye ring and breast. Hopefully you will display more images from your travels in the future.

Hi Jonathan
First time that I see this rare bird with such a mixture of colors.
Thanks for sharing.

Bonjour Jonathan,
La profondeur de champ aurait pu être plus fine mais le sujet est tout de même bien valorisé dans une belle lumière qui fait resplendir de superbes couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
