I took the photo of this toucan at Lujan Zoo. It was alone in a big cage. I put the lens very close to the cage to it not appear.
Toucans are members of the family Ramphastidae of near passerine birds from the Neotropics. The Ramphastidae family is most closely related to the American barbets. They are brightly marked and have large, often colorful bills. The family includes five genera and about forty different species. The name of this bird group is derived from the Tupi word tukana, via Portuguese. The family includes toucans, aracaris and toucanets; more distant relatives include various families of barbets and woodpeckers in the suborder Pici.

beautiful portrait of this unique bird. My daughter loves tucans but we have both never seen them alive. Great colors and a nice shallow depth of the field.
Very well done,

Bonita foto! Gosto bastante deste pássaros e aqui o enquadramento e as cores estão muito bons. O olho dele está excelente!
Acho que a história da girafa me deixou com alergia a Zoos!
