[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
he red-and-yellow barbet (Trachyphonus erythrocephalus) is a species of African barbet found in eastern Africa. Males have distinctive black (spotted white), red, and yellow plumage; females and juveniles are similar, but less brightly colored. The species lives in broken terrain and nests and roosts in burrows. Omnivorous, the species feeds on seeds, fruit, and invertebrates. Where not hunted, they are tame, but their feathers are used by certain tribes, such as the Maasai.

A truly grateful capture. Great specimen, posing beautifully for you.

The top of the head is bit blurred, but that does not diminish the loveliness of the image. A smaller aperture would have helped.

TFS, Biswarup,
