Hi Radu,
Great to see a post of you. : )
I think of you often, and wonder which corner of the world you are exploring at the moment.
Hope you are keeping well.
Love this hornbill. The POV is great,
not to mention the sharp details and the great colors.
My family and I will be in Bali in August.
I hope I will see one of these magnificent birds.
Any suggestions as to where to go in Bali?

Hello Radu,
Wonderful photo of this Wreated Hornbill, which I only knew from the Zoo. Excellent sharp details and clear colours. The DOF and POV are fantastic.

Impressive content, Radu

Hi Radu

Haven't seen you for quite a while. Good to see a posting from you again.

Fascinating subject, a stranger to me. I just love that multi coloured eye. The details are fine and great colour spectrum. Keep on Xplorating.

Well done and TFS.

Hi Radu,
very good captured, so clear and detail.


Hey Bud!
Excellent headshot of this enormous hornbill, definitely a very cool looking bird. I've worked with these before. I would have to say I was pretty amazed at the sound they produce when either taking off or landing, it's like listening to a helipcopter in slow motion.
If your serious I might take you up on the offer, Indonesia is a very cool place. I could imagine the Radu & Paul expedition! So good to hear from you again. You have my email so you can contact me that way to. Again very nice image.

Paul :)

Hi Radu
very interesting a bird
very nice colors and sharp
well done.

Hi Radu

It is a beautiful bird and would fit into many of my themes :-)

Is it a full crop or does the bird have a goitre:-)?
