Resplendence by juddpatterson Resplendence by juddpatterson
Resplendent Quetzal - Pharomachrus mocinno

Truly one of the world's most beautiful birds. I photographed this long-tailed male in a Costa Rican cloud forest in late November 2009. Let me finish a write-up and I'll share more of my magical experience with these birds.
