Resplendent Quetzal in the morning
Resplendent Quetzal: San Gerardo de Dota, Costa Rica, December 2021 — This is, of course, the must see bird for any visit to Central America, and Costa Rica in particular, and the Savegre River valley near San Gerardo de Dota is the place to see it…or at least one of the best places. This was a new location in the valley for me this past trip and one I will be revisiting. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications and multi-frame noise reduction. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. Equivalent ISO 2000 @ f4 @ 1/500th.
