Unfortunately, this bird preferred to keep something (mostly leaves) between itself and my lens. Even on this image there is grass straw partly blocking the view.

It would seem there's little wonder there's very few images of this species in the Gallery, if they're all this hard to get Niels!!!

What a beauty he is - very well done my friend.
Lol, I often have that problem with most Central and South American bird species! Excellent work capture this beauty Niels! TFS!
