Hello Peter- In first glance I thought why have you described your picture as "Great Photo"! Later I saw it's "Great Potoo"- a nocturnal bird! I haven't heard this name before. So,thanks a lot for showing a New Species to me, as well as to TN. Details and colour(I saw this bird just now in Google) look natural and very well presentation. Again thanks for sharing. Regards- Srikumar

Super mooie en scherpe opname met super zonlicht wat deze vogel ook lekker vindt denk ik
Mooie compositie zo op de tak
prachtige camouflage kleuren
ik heb ze ook gezien in Costa Rica
zal wel een ander lid van de Fam. zijn
Zat tussen het gras als het donker was

Hi Peter,I almost didn't see the bird from the thumbnail as it blends very well with the colour and texture of the tree it is on.The photo is sharp and well coloured it is lucky that the bird looks like it resting being day time and it being a nocturnal species,you could of easily missed it.
Thank you for sharing it with us.

Congratulations on displaying a new bird for TN here and with an excellent image which, it seems by the very good camouflage and its nocturnal lifestyle, may not be all too easy to come by (which probably is an understatement). Interesting accompanying note too. Thank you and best wishes.

A few days ago I saw a documentary on National Geographic; where a Brazilian documentary showed us this rare bird and its marvelous system of camouflage. Your photography, Peter, is a beautiful finishing touch to complete my knowledge of this Nyctibius grandis. Congratulations for the great work you've done to deal with the exposure, at a time when sunlight is undoubtedly a big head ache for a nature photographer. Great, great work, my friend.

This is really an amazing bird and you have taken it in a very unconventional manner for these species. Not camouflaged but in contrast to the blue sky.

Congratulations on another new species for TN. I have to admit from your thumbnail image I originally thought this was some type of lizard sunning itself on a limb. What a surprise to find out it was actually a bird when I brought it up on my screen.
Super sharp detail and wonderful example of it's camouflage ability. It actually reminds me somewhat of the Common Nighthawks we have here in Ohio. What a unique pose it uses when resting on a tree. Great job!!

Very interesting bird, he has an uncanny ability to become part of the background.
