Now THAT'S the way to shoot a toucan (err ... so to speak). Unlike my pathetic attempt for the Birds challenge. Congrats on the shot and high placement!

I wonder if his beak is supposed to be that way or is injured? Great color, nice pose from your subject!

Excellent detail revealed in the plumage, perfect dof, and the composition and pose of the bird is spot-on. good work.

Beautiful bird, too bad the beak is so damaged.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Such a beautiful bird. Excellent texture on yellow and most of the black feathers. Lovely bokeh, but my only nit pick would be the white areas top right. I still think this will be blue.
