Great shot, Carlos. And in the wild? Doubly great! From what I can tell about your use of the spotting scope, that seems to add an extra level of difficulty. But what an amazing shot to show for it all!

That is just super, Carlos. : )
Wonderful composition of those two beautiful birds facing each other.
The colors on them are magnificent.
Great details and light on the subjects, and nicely blurred background.
Good job and thanks for sharing.
A warm welcome to TN. : )
