Kitsnaps: Abyssinian Hornbill  

Abyssinian Hornbill
Abyssinian Hornbill
This magnificently ugly fellow is Ted’s nemesis at the zoo. Every time they’ve encountered each other, the hornbill defends his territory like crazy. Ted wasn’t with us when I took this, and the hornbill was showing off mightily for his lady friend, so I got some great pictures. :)

Wow--it looks like a statue. Do you have a picture of the whole creature?

Iiiiiiiiii don't think so but I'll check. The problem is that a shot like this is taken through the mesh cage, which at this telephoto range blurs out, but a longer shot shows the cage clearly. If I don't have one, though, I'll take one for you next time I get a chance. :)

See that you do! (Pretty please)
