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. At 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,   


before he turns on a dime and hops up into the foliage
07:55:52

He scores some fruit by
07:55:56 

and flies off into the wild blue yonder with his prize by
07:55:59
Actually, the yonder was more green, than blue.

PS: this is the toucan croak
