Awesome shot Livio! The exposure is fantantic showing very nice natural colors and great detail the subject matter is very interesting especially with the catch of the day for the menu selection. :)
Astonishing neat and sharp shot!
I see you use the EF100-400mm... I'm just new on digital world and one nature photography but willing to improve ...I have the "basic" 18-55 mmm but thinking of a future investment on a tele lenses...This one is among my options ...Do you feel confortable with it?

Very cool Livio, I really like it mf.
This bird has that "wild & crazy" look about em'
I'm not sure if it's the punk hairdo or those eyes..or both :)
It's got excellent sharpness, details, DOF, POV, color, exposure, and this feeding time action is wonderful..
Very well done.

What a great capture!!!!
Never seen an image of this bird before, but it seems to be in bad need of a hairdresser :)
Love the cock's comb on it's head.
Composition, clarity and exposure are perfect and the details in the feathers and frog in the beak are very beautiful.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a great weekend.
Kindest regards, Harry

Stunning picture with great sharpness, good compo and perfect exposure.
Even better if tail not cut, but partly out of focus so not a big point

A spectacular capture of this fascinating looking bird. Perfect timing to catch him with that look on his face and the prey in his beak. The wide open eye and the crest is amazing. Excellent lighting, marvelous colors, razor sharp details and a wonderful setting. I would love to see one of these!

This week I placed a photo of this bird from a birdpark, but this is so much better! What an expression! Great sharpness, brilliant colours, focus and DOF. Perfect light and composition. I have only two points to give.

Una muy buena, excelente foto, con el pirincho o anu branco devorando una pobre ranita. Impresiona ese ojo bien abierto, parece algo endemoniado y loco!
los detalles están perfectos

Weird bird, and poor frog! Very sharp and great exposure against the light still keeping all the tones right in the bird!

What a remarkable bird! The characteristics and personality captured is great. I have never seen such a bird. The colour of the eye is so captivating and the expression on its face is priceless. All details captured are displayed so well, and I just love the straight in the air “feather-do”. Focus, sharpness and overall presentation is flawless. I had to add it to my favourites. The frog in the bird’s mouth is an additional bonus and rounds of this delightful image. Thanks for sharing. At the time you posted this one, I was not part of Trek Nature, but I am glad I stumbled across it at this moment.
