  1. Most Andean tanagers look beautiful, but this one has got to be one of my favorites!
    (Plus, this is a bit of an improvement on my previous photo from Colombia :)

  3. Incredible image, everything about it is perfect!

    As for that earlier image, I can relate so much to white sky back-light in the tropics, it has ruined so many of my shots. Being on the good side of the light makes such a huge difference. That and being an incredible birder and photographer like yourself.

    1. Tell me about it! Sometimes you could forget that the sky is supposed to be blue here!
      Haha thanks for your compliment, in this case it was just luck and persistence, as it took a week of seeing 2 or 3 of these guys before I finally got a good opportunity, with a bird feeding on the edge of a landslide just below me.
