Photographer's Note

I saw this bird in our first walking in the middle of Okavango Delta. I don't know its name but I am happy to get its image. It was the end of the day, a very hot day, around 35 Celsius. I was in a very, very bad humor because I was thirsty, dirty and I was obligated to stay inside tents because there was a gap in my accommodated tour. I was surrounded by strange people while people of group was in another region, inside luxurious tents. haha.
PS: According with information of my friend Daddo: "This is a hornbill, apparently in South Africa it's called the flying banana by the locals because of the bill's shape and colour. "

Vi este pássaro num passeio que fiz no fim de uma tarde muito quente, cerca de 35 graus. Nesse momento eu estava terrivelmente mal humorado pois haviam me obrigado a dormir duas noites em tendas já que a reserva do meu tour, que parava em hotéis, estava com uma falha. Enquanto meus amigos estavam em outro local do delta, em tendas luxuosas, eu estava ali, morto de calor, sede e todo sujo. haha.
