This is a Bucerotid (hornbill) for sure likely of the Tockus genus, probably the albocristatus but I'm not sure. Still I really like his expression nevermind the cagy BG, hope you like it too. Wish I took his ID when I was there.

Hi Radu, what an unusual fellow you have here. And what a punk hairstyle! Good closeness, showing us his blue face and red eyes. Well shown, thank you

Hi Radu,

Great portriat, I like the composition and pose, nice detail and colours too, I think the background is fine as the colours go well with the image.
Nice to see Billy is still sticking to his Punk roots.

TFS Hilary :~)

Hai impresso un bel ritratto, Radu!
Bellissimi i dettagli dell'occhio e delle piume della desta dell'uccello, colori stupendi, bravo!

Ciao e grazie.

Salut Radule
Bine ai venit inapoi din excursie! Am vazut ca ai avut ocazii multiple de aniamle unele mai frumoase decat celelaltele. Recunosc...sunt un pic invidios :)
Din pacate nu voi putea sa spun cate ceva despre fiecare, fiind plecat si eu vre-o saptamana si total in urma cu criticile.
Vorbesc in numele tuturor pozelor tale din Filipine cand zis ca sunt superbe, cu detalii si culori foarte frumoase si bine conturate...ce mai..ca toate restul :)
Cat despre aceasta de fata, imi place de asemenea foarte mult lumina relativ difuza...ii da un feeling aparte.

Bravo si TFS
Good to have you back

Non ho mai visto un animale di questo tipo. Foto molto bella complimenti ciao gigicacco
