Great shot.

A bird shot! I'm so impressed. Birds fly away when they see my camara.

Perfect post for project black. A very majestic bird.

I love that pose! Think he had a crick in his neck later?

I took a photo of one of these fellas in our local zoo a few months back. I will not be offering my snap for comparison to yours. Great clarity.

Wow! Ugly bird; beautiful shot!

That is one strange looking bird. Spot on for a project black photo though.

Very cool shot!

The angle here made me see the colors before the bird. I love it. Great job for Project Black.

Cool shot! Our son just returned from nine months in Africa and brought back some carved wooden hornbills. Interesting looking birds!

Excellent shot! Great entry for PB. :D

Very nice. I am still looking for a camera, but keep putting it off. School is on the horizon, so I may have to wait.
Anyway, I really like your animal pictures, they are way cool.

I love his pose! The orange is wonderful against all his black feathers.

Mar said...

Impressive shot for black!

Robin (the pensieve one) said...

MARVELOUS addition to this week's theme! VERY unusual creature and you seem to have captured a perfect view of him. I've never seen one of these before (and I'm not sure I want to outside captivity!).

Rebecca said...

What an interesting position his head's in... makes my neck hurt!

Sara said...

I've never seen a black bird quite like that one!

Mike said...

Now that is a bird and a great black bird!
