Cover image for my Animal Portraits calendar

I always wanted to photograph this gorgeous bird and I got my chance on my trip to Mayan Riviera, Mexico. He was posing for me so nicely, no fear just curiosity. His feet are not showing here but believe it or not they are this amazing tone of blue so totally unexpected with his coloring. What an incredible experience.

Taken with Canon XT with 75-300mm lens, f/9, 1/500 sec, ISO 400, 200mm focal length

  • Thank you so much Tony. It doesn’t show in this photo but in addition to all these fantastic colours he also has blue legs. Isn’t it something?
