Ah LOL! This was why you were looking Stanley. ;)

What a great picture you've taken of this jacamar - gorgeous birds aren't they.

It's sad we don't seem to see more jacamar pictures coming in - they must be quite difficult to track down.

Thanks very much my friend..... it's 22.5c here now and it's early evening! All windows are wide open!
Great photo with a fine composition and set up. You have rendered very well the colours of the bird's plumage.

Thank you for sharing,
