Red-headed Barbet Male, Ecuador

Red-headed Barbet Male
Tandayapa, Ecuador   –   September 25, 2013
Canon EOS 7D   *   EF500mm f/4L IS USM   *   ISO 1250   *   1/160 sec @ f/5.6

The distant call of the beautiful Red-headed Barbet echoes in the distant forest. But this male was a fequent visit at our fruit feeders, where he was a popular photo subject.

The deep red color is almost outside the color gamut of many displays, but is striking in the dark forest.
