My most wished for bird from my Costa Rica trip, was quite happy to have some opportunities with it even if it was very dark and raining!

Beautiful colors, details and a great pose. I like how you were able to include the full tail.

The dark plumage looks excellent against the similarly dark background.

Really a wonderful shot,
I really like it very much you have composed this image
with incredible colors giving the right space and value to the tail of this magnificent specimen.

I'm sure this must be way up the top of anyone's list going to that part of the world, Cindy - and you nailed it beautifully with this lovely frame!

Certainly, a beautiful image, of what I understand can be an elusive species. The perch and the framework, along with the complimentary green surroundings, look wonderful.
