Vignette de Jour Nº5

A short vignette today, simply to present this morning’s Toucan pictures to adoring Toucan fans around the world … or something like that. I’ve been suffering from Toucan obsession lately and after publishing these, I hope to make room in my birdly preoccupied brain for other models, preferably stationary ones.
 
So, here’s my colorful friend Ramphastos sulfuratus, a Keel-billed toucan, on one of his early morning one-minute guarumo fast-food forays.
07:54:43 He is calling for his buddies, but they didn’t show up today.

Now you got to be quick and pay close attention:
07:55:50 A slight turn to the right

07:55:51 He’s looking straight in the camera for a fleeting second,   

07:55:52 Before turning on a dime & hopping up into the foliage

07:55:56 He scores some fruit
 
07:55:59 He flies off into the wild blue yonder with his prize

Actually, the yonder was more green, than blue.

PS: this is the toucan croak
