This Sunbittern flew up on this railing. He stayed there for a few minutes and off he flew. Taken at the Jacksonville Zoo.

This is one fascinating bird. It's name may give a reason he looks like he is socking in the rays of the sun. You did a most beautiful job with capturing its colors and its marvelous features with this lighting. That is some work girl. Gorgeous job my friend.

Thank you everyone. He was so beautiful. When his wings are open it shows all the beautiful colors. I didn't get one with them open.
