Close close-up...

One of the things on my 'wish list' for this trip was a decent shot of a hornbill. I've seen lots of them over the last years, but for some reason never got the chance to shoot a good portrait.


I guess that this particular yellow-billed hornbill has been listening to my desires: he posed nicely at a very close distance, which gave me the opportunity to shoot a whole series of close-ups. This is one of the closest shots, I might upload some others later.


Shot in Okaukuejo Camp, Etosha National Park, Namibia
