Quetzal lived in Costa Rica

in #busy4 years ago (edited)


I lived in Costa Rica for 24 years of my life and never saw a Quetzal because I never went looking for one. After moving to Canada and starting with photography, I realized how I missed many amazing opportunities and experiences because you take things for granted. This is my first official Resplendent Quetzal image taken in San Gerardo de Dota, Costa Rica. This male was feeding and perching on an "aguacatillo" tree which is a a fruit of the avocado family. Males have four extended uppertail coverts up to 76cm long. In this image its tail was hiding behind some branches so I decided to compose focusing on its amazing red and green feathers that cover its body. Don't take things for granted and go enjoy the things that surround you wherever you live.
