Keel-billed Toucan by Edward Munoz

Edward Munoz photographed this Keel-billed Toucan near Lago del Lagarto Lodge in Boca Tapada, Costa Rica.

“The lodge is in the rainforest and promotes environmental protection through an international 501c organization called Images for Conservation,” Edward says. “The lodge has several blinds and platforms looking out on natural areas where a variety of birds visit and perch.” He titled the photo “Colorful Perch.”

Equipment and settings: Canon 7D Mark II, Canon 100-400 mm f4.5-5.6 IS USM lens. 400mm, f5.6, 1/1250 sec, ISO 5000.
