A profile shot of a Red and Yellow Barbet at the San Antonio Zoo. After seeing the Bearded Barbet in Europe, I was excited to come back and see this guy right at the local zoo. Such a gorgeous, colorful bird.
Beautiful bird and very nice shot.
This is amazing, and the colors are phenomenal! Ver interesting bird, haha!
Thanks. Glad you liked it. I think the drab background actually helps make the colors pop out even more.
Wonderful portrait !
Thank you so much for including my photo in the feature. You selected some really wonderful shots.
Incredible colors on this guy.
Agreed. Coloration is probably a big part of why I've gotten so deep into birding lately. It's always amazing seeing such vibrant splashes of color in nature.
Wow, what a cool bird! How big are they?
Oh, I'd say it was a good 8 inches from tip to tail, maybe a bit bigger. A fairly good sized bird.
