Amazonian Motmot
I spent 6 hours today with my car suck in the mud on a distant dirt road away from any help... was a tough sunday morning to tell you the least LOL.
And all because I wanted to go to the spot where I last saw these beauties. The bird that got me into bird photography.

Now at the computer looking at the pics I got, it was worth it LOL.
We birders are wierd.

Outstanding photo of this one. What a long tail he has, do all Motmots have a tail that long? My bird was an Elegant Trogon, took 4 years to find one after I started looking, but it got me hooked. Sorry about the car getting stuck, hope no damage was incurred.
 
Well worth the effort! What a beautiful motmot and a stunning portrait.
 
Superb capture of this Amazonian Motmot Roynato, tfs. Sorry to hear you had problems with your car getting stuck in the mud.
 
I can't think of any Motmot that isn't outstanding to watch! You've captured this one really well. tfs.

I am truly sorry about your being stuck in the mud Roynato! This is a brilliant frontal close-up of this large motmot. I can't think of a better species to get one hook on bird photography. TFS!
