Slaty-tailed Trogon

Slaty-tailed Trogon: Gamboa, Panama, July 2022 — On our walk near the Gamboa Sloth Santuary, Igua and I found a pair of Slaty-tailed Trogons along the road. We saw the female (without the eye-ring) on the way in and the way out, and the male on the way out. Panama has 10 species of Trogons, including the Resplendent Quetzal. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Male ISO 800 @ f4 @ 1/500th. Female ISO 1000 @ f4 @ 1/500th, plus 1EV exposure compensation.
