Collared Trogon

Collared Trogon: San Gerardo de Dota, Costa Rica — Since we seem to be doing the Trogons of Costa Rica, this is not a great photo of the Collard Trogon, but it is the only one I have from December’s trips. We were chasing a Quetzel and found this fellow hanging out where we expected his more resplendent cousin. The sun was just peeking over the mountains and spilling down into the depths of the Savegre valley. It had not gotten this deep yet. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with multi-frame noise reduction. Processed (heavily cropped, enlarged, noise reduced, and adjusted) in Pixomator Photo and finished off in Apple Photos. Equivalent ISO 4000 @ f4 @ 1/500th.
