White-eared Puffbird

Posted by campossallesfotografia on 1 de June de 2010

Just one more photo from Guainumbi Reserve this weekend. This is a White-eared Puffbird, a rather common species of open areas or forest edge, as is the case here. I’m not sure if I should clone the out-of-focus branch or not. It feels kinda empty without it, while with it it adds some depth to the image… but I’m not sure yet…

White-eared Puffbird (Nystalus chacuru)

I love puffbirds, they are so photogenic and usually stays at the same place for a while, allowing a good approach for photos. Oh and how can one not like the perches you get at Guainumbi… they are by itself a photo subject with all those mosses and epiphytes.
