After the chaffinch on vintage gear, I had better show something a bit technically better and more interesting using 5DIV and 400mm DO II.  A male Oriental Piedhornbill passing an oil palm fruit to a female, from a boat.

Nice shot, Alan. I like to see behavioural shots like that.

I didn't know hornbills could ride boats, though...

This is the bird's version of: Can I buy you a drink?  ;D

Nice pictures, Alan.

Surely you read Captain Hornbiller when you were a kid? Or, at least watched the tv series.

Another 2 months before I make it back to Florida. In the meantime I'm going through shots from last November.
This was the 23rd photo I took on the day I arrived last year.
