    1. Thanks Ferdy! Posted 7 days ago
  2. Nice, Thibaud! Those are not easy to photograph! Posted 7 days ago
    1. Yes I'd had a very frustrating encounter with them in Puerto Nariño, but I struck gold at that spot. Two pairs in very open shrubby vegetation, even venturing out onto the exposed mud right by the river! Posted 7 days ago
      1. Yep, I've only seen them once near Puerto Nariño, but the morning was wet and foggy and I'm not sure if I got anything good to share for this one. They're very chatty, but they don't sit still for long and it's an extra challenge because have the movement of the boat to deal with, as well.

        You did a great job here.

        1. My experience was very similar! Here I lucked out in that I was able to walk along the muddy river edge, which made things a lot easier.. Posted 6 days ago
          1. That would be much better. Photographing from a boat is so challenging; even worse on pelagics!

            1. For sure! Still, I love pelagics, definitely want to go on at least one outing this year. Fingers crossed! Posted 6 days ago
  3. Lovely colours, great capture! Posted 4 days ago
    1. Thanks! Posted 4 days ago
