Resplendent Quetzal

Not every day I have the chance to photograph a male quetzal leaving his nest. I prepared myself from the night before as a friend told me about this nest. I was there first thing in the morning waiting for the bird to come out to go and look for food for their chicks. It was a matter of patience to wait for him to return to the nest.
