Lesson’s Motmot

Lesson’s Motmot: Las Cruces Biological Research Station, San Vito, Costa Rica, December 2022 — If you remember, I posted a Lesson’s Motmot from our very first day in Costa Rica, from the grounds of the Hotel Bougainvilla, This one came for the bananas on the terrace behind the dinning hall at Las Curces. Lesson’s and the Blue-capped Motmot with a range in Northeast Mexico both used to be the Blue-crowned Motmot when I first birded in Central America. The Lesson’s is perhaps the most common Motmot in Central American and certainly in Costa Rica. Sony Rx10iv at 580mm and 493mm equivalents. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Pro and Apple Photos. Upright: ISO 400 @ f4 @ 1/500th. Horizontal: ISO 800 @ f4 @ 1/500th. Plus .7EV.
