Male Resplendent Quetzal

Sepia. The quetzals love to sit in the canopy of a tree. This day the male was in the dark part of the lauraceae tree (wild avocado) doing his thing with the open sky behind him. It looks like a B&W but does have a bit of green. Taken in Costa Rica, San Gerardo de Dota, at QERC, a field station operated by the Biology Department of Southern Nazarene University, Bethany, Oklahoma.
