Green-bearded Helmetcrest
« on: February 06, 2019, 10:44:11 am »

Just home from Colombia leading a photo workshop.

Prior to the trip I spent a few days in the highlands around Bogota where this guy was my #1 target.

Success!

First class! (As usual.)

I really like how you managed to show the perfect fit between the bird's camouflage colors and its surrounds, yet still make it stand out. The bird itself also shows lovely depth in its rendering.

The first one is very good but I can't help thinking the second is so lacking in any enviroment it looks like a watercolour painting in a field guide.  The result of very long lens I presume. I have no idea from these pictures whether the bird is a garden bird or lives in the forest canopy for instance.

Beautiful.
It seems to have huge wings in relation to body size - any images in flight?

Remarkable bird in its have only a small patch of brilliant color. Very much like both compositions and the subject placement in the frame.
