The famous Resplendent Quetzal

Sleeping at 2600m altitude and getting up at 05:30am and waiting outside in a quite freezing condition…. all this just to see the famous resplendent Quetzal once in life 🙂

Together with a guide who was checking with a few other colleagues where the Quetzales are, we’ve moved to the second spot and finally reconized the first female:

And again waiting and trusting the guide. He told me, that the birds are eating wild avocado not that far away and that the male will come.

For this moment everything was worth it. A very beautiful bird and with a bit flash-light, the colors start even more to shine.

Later with a bit more light.
