Hallo Annick,
Mooi portrait en compositie tegen een mooie groene achtergrond.
Ik denk dat deze vogel tot de familie van de capitonidae of bucerotidae behoort, zo aan de snavel te zien. Ik kan in mijn vogelboeken helaas ook geen id vinden.

Hi Annick,
this guy is looking so strange - haha - what a cool bird.
Sharpness is excellent, we can count the feathers ;-)
Thanks and enjoy the sunday

Dit is een White-crested Hornbill (Tropicranus albocristatus), familie van de neushoornvogels (Bucerotidae) uit Congo. Mooie foto.

Hello Annick,
this is a wonderful portrait. Excellent POV, nice natural colors and very well set off a blurry BG. Very nice work on the xposure, with such great details in the black plumage. Very well done

Hello Annick,
Oooohhh, what a strange specimen Annick! It reminds me of Zeno's birds which are often very weird :) This is a great capture with excellent details, composition and POV. He looks like a mix between many kinds of birds... Well done and TFS,
