Rusty-margined Guan in Atlantic Forest Reserve, Brazil Another image made in very low light as dusk was reducing the light with every moment. These birds came every evening to the fruit tray put up in the trees to prevent the tapirs getting it, but always just a few moments before it was pitch dark and so photography was challenging to say the least. Still, fun to see these "jungle chickens" as they tend to be shy and retiring and thus hard to see.
