I always repeat myself but what else to say before such a great picture? This is another high quality portrait of a beautiful and colorful specie that I didn't know :) Details, exposure and compo are perfect! Wonderful! Are you happy with your new toy? I have heard that they experiment some little technical bugs but I can't remember what exactly :(((
Wonderful portrait of this bird. I think it's a Wood-Rail (little wood-rail - aramides mangle?) Everything in this photo looks perfect.

I can't say that I like such birds best of all, but focus and detail of this picture are wonderful. Great color and DOF.

Ha! Red, yellow, blue, brown and gray. And all the colors are separated. Very nice image. I like the composition of a portrait and nice OOF buckground
Peter had the genus right. Certainly Aramides. A. mangle has no grey coloration on the underparts. In my judgment, this is a young (because of the apparent shortness of the bill) Aramides ypecaha. It is unfortunate that you did not take a full-body shot, it would have made the ID easier. The confusion species is Aramides saracura (one of the reasons I have eliminated this bird is that the coloration of the throat front and breast is just too light - would have been darker and bluer in this bird rather than greyish-blue).

Excellent color, contrast, and details. I love the brightness of the eye, the crop, not to mention the overall composition. The bill is sharply defined - not to mention in sharp focus color-wise. Wonderful, wonderful capture.

Wonderful shot with sharp and nice colour tones on its plumage. The red eyes and the yellow bill look gorgeous. Superb lighting and a precise DOF allows the bird to stand out from the BG perfectly. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Beautiful capture, Anick. Great focus (I especially like the details in the feathers). Perfect use of the limited DoF to isolate the bird. Nice light. Nicely composed, too.
