Scarlet-Rumped Trogon (Male) - Harpactes duvaucelii
This colourful bird about 24 cm in length is pretty shy but today it came out to "pose" for us. Taken in the afternoon "he" sat rather still for this shot to be taken.

There are seven types of Trogons in West Malaysia.

Another great capture of a beautiful and exotic bird.
The details are spot on, and the colors are gorgeous.
A wonderful POV to show off all the markings.
Did you take that in the wild or in a bird park?
TFS. : )

That is quite a reach you have with that lens set up Phil! What an interesing bird. The colors are amazing. You were able to use a flash so I assume this in pretty much uncropped???
