Male Buff-breasted Paradise Kingfisher (Tanysiptera silvia). I went back to the same spot as my last posts the following day, this time with a tiny bit of fill-in flash on HSS. Sometimes in the wet tropics you have to bring your own light.

ISO12500, 500mm, f7.1, 1/640, on R5.

Great idea to use a little fill flash to bring out the colors, Greg.
