Killer good Glenn. What's not to like- gorgeous perch with the lichens and leaves.Very nice comp, although I did a browser scroll and I could see a vwrsion with some off the top.
The blacks look great (especially considering you have a 7D in the dark environment of the rainforest. Did you use a flash?
I love the tiger stripe pantaloons and the nice clean BG.

Stunning photo- love the tree (?), or whatever it's hanging on to. Looks like our pileated with striped pajamas on. ;)
