We were just exploring the grounds of the Pachira Lodge before breakfast one morning, and found this Trogon in the trees above us. He changed positions a few times, but did pose at each spot for a fair while, giving us ample photo opportunities. This is another example where I used flash as the main source of light for the subject, as the bright background, and the low amount of light, wouldn't allow an acceptable image with natural light alone.
