Spent my free day traveling to the Parque Nacional Cataratas del Iguazu in Puerto Iguazu to see the Famous falls on the Argentine Side, another 20-hour bus ride from Buenos Aires. Boy, how lucky I was, look what i've spotted, I guess this toucan was a very nice bonus to my souvenir from this majestic place, and she really does love the camera.

This photography is utterly beautiful. The highlight for me personally is the striking blue color of the toucans eye. This is a very majestic creature and you did a very good job of photographing it :) superb!

Great catch of the toucan in such a perfect pose on its profile, allowing you to capture the long beautiful red beak. Love all the details and rich tone you got form it. I saw a few from a distant and one up close, but by the time I got my camera out it was gone, so congrats.
Great quality in all espects.

This bird makes me think about Ireland, do you understand why ? lol Great view on this very coloured bird. I love the bokeh and the great colours. Just a shame there's a leaf and a blade of grass on the toucan beak.
Have a nice day,

Luce ben gestita e ottimo contrasto cromatico con lo sfondo verde.
Well done and TFS!

Hi Matthieu, Nice shot of toucan, it has always been the bird of attraction for photographers, because of its interesting colorful beak. Nicely managed focus and beautiful colors.

Amazing photograph I absolutely love this beautiful bird '' The Toucan '' such a colourful image of he or she??
I have been travelling around Argentina for just over 5 months I have managed to shoot a couple of shots of The Condor but way up high... I need a much more powerful zoom to be that ambitious.
Well done on this image it is excellent.
