If there was a ranking for birds, the Neotropic Cormorant would probably occupy the lower parts of it. They are very common at its range whanever there's open water with fish in it. They are a bit ugly, with it's all black color. Experienced twitchers may not even raise the binocular to take a look at them. I, too, never really gave much attention to them... even though I'm not a twitcher.

There's a lake close to home where a lot of them fish and come to roost every evening. Other...

Birding while on photography assignment

This past week was spent on Florianópolis photographing for a nice local hotel. The island of Florianópolis is a famous summer destination in South Brazil, as it has many scenic beaches.

We did some aerial photography which was really cool. The possibilities of photographing from a helicopter are infinite, too bad it costs so much! From up there I could see the groups of Magnificent Frigatebirds soaring directly underneath us against the blue or emerald green water, which would have...

Backyard friends

Posted Wednesday 15th April 2009 at 12:58 by Aracari
There's a couple of Tropical Screech-Owls in my area. I've always seen them and took some pictures before. This past week however I decided to try to make a special photo of them. So I put out a multi-flash setup at the backyard, under two big avocado trees. A somewhat "secluded" place, just what this species likes.

At the first night they came in to playback within a couple minutes, but would not come much close, probably worried with all those flashes. The next night one...

Hummingbird photography

Posted Tuesday 24th March 2009 at 11:58 by Aracari
I have always loved hummingbirds, and for long have been wanting to do some "serious" hummingbird photography. These were done at Guainumbi Reserve, near Ubatuba, in the Atlantic Rainforest of SE Brazil. These are multi-flash setups that I'm working on, see it as a "work in progress" as I still need to refine the lighting and most importantly, use native flowers.

I just came back from the private nature reserve and lodge Parque do Zizo, in southern São Paulo State. The reserve lies in an isolated and very large area of Atlantic Rainforest (the largest one left actually) and is growing in popularity for its great birds. This time it wasn't different.

I spent 2 days there with some friends. The day we arrived was very hot and sunny, so the forest was quite silent and we didn't see much on that afternoon besides the usuals, like Blond-crested...
