.... how to make one of these ugly brutes look pretty!!! LOL

A lovely picture you've taken of this hornbill Emilie - they seem to handle the berries so delicately, don't they.

A wonderful addition to your Gallery - thanks very much lass.
 
Love this Emilie! The way it holds the berry with that gigantic bill is nothing but amazing. Great image in all aspects. Excellent.
 
You can see here a short video of the bird picking the fruits... Not an amazing image quality, but still nice to see. :)
