Blues

Dave talked about blues which reminded me of a little sketch I did of Red Legged Honeycreepers and a Blue Morpho butterfly. Beautiful striking colors.

Black-throated Trogon

Black-throated Trogons live mostly in dark forested areas of the American Tropics and can be difficult to photograph. Fortunately these two were cooperative. The one on the pipe rail just sat there and allowed me to approach to within about 20 feet. The one on the tree was next to a path and didn’t seem alarmed at my presence.

This trogon eats mostly insects, but will also take lizards and fruit.
