Photographer's Note

In Foz do Iguazu there are not only waterfalls to see. One can observe beautiful birds, butterflies and flowers from the region. I liked these big beaks very much.

The toco toucan, the largest and best-known toucan species, is at home in South America's tropical forests. Its oversized, colorful bill has made it one of the world's most popular birds. They can weigh nearly two pounds and grow to 25 inches long, with their bill accounting for nearly half of their length.

Indigenous peoples regard the bird with a sacred eye; they are traditionally seen as conduits between the worlds of the living and the spirits.

Two more in Workshoips. Better to see in the large format.
