GREAT CURASSOW, RIO FRIO NEAR LOS CHILES, COSTA RICA, JANUARY 24, 2015
Pentax 55-300 at 300mm
1/80 sec. f8
Technically this is a substandard photograph, having been shot through the window of a moving tour bus, but I'm including it on this blog because the pheasant-sized great curassow, an endangered species, isn't often seen in the wild. Our driver and guide grew greatly excited when they spotted it in the road near Los Chiles. This is a female; the male is even odder-looking. They live in the rain forests of central America.
