Red-breasted toucan (sc. Ramphastos dicolorus)

This is a picture of a red-breasted toucan (commonly named green-billed toucan or Tucano de bico verde in Brazil) was taken at the Bird Park (Parque das Aves) in Foz do Iguacu in Brazil.

The Bird Park has more than 900 birds of 150 species. The majority of them are Brazilian birds. A third of these species are endangered. All birds seen in the Park originate from zoos, breeders authorized by IBAMA or rehabilitation centres. The Bird Park does not accept birds of unknown origin. All animals are registered and an annual report is given to the Brazilian Zoological Society and IBAMA.
Some of the birds are rehabilitated but cannot be returned to nature.

Personally for any lover of birds and photographer this park deserve a visit because of the amount of possibilities to capture on film a lot of different colorful species flying around you in the large walkthrough aviaries.

I wish my visit would have been longer in the park but I only had less than an hour to visit it before closing. For this picture, I had to use the flash because it was getting darker and because this funny bird was standing in a dark spot. I gave more light, crop and sharpened the picture for posting.

Belle réussite Stéphan!
Techniquement parlant, le focus et l'exposition sont parfaits.
Artistiquement parlant, la faible PdC définit bien le contour de l'oiseau. La saturation des couleurs est superbe.
Bravo et envoies en d'autres du même calibre.
