Green Crowned Brilliant – Male
This is a male Green Crowned Brilliant. The way the light reflects off his feathers when he turns just the right way is amazing. Seconds earlier he had his head turned the other way and his feathers looked completely flat and relatively colorless. I was very lucky to be in the spot I was to see the vibrant colors come to life.
