Inspired by Nature

My name is Sam. I'm 23 years old from NJ, and I love animals and nature and blue! I also have a blog about my voyage around the Atlantic Ocean through Semester at Sea! sam-at-sea.tumblr.com

Swallow Tanager

These colorful birds are both Swallow tanagers, Tersina viridis (Passeriformes - Thraupidae), a species native to South America that displays a distinctive, sexually dimorphic, coloration.

Male Swallow Tanagers (top) are shining turquoise blue, with a broad bill and black on the forehead and throat. While females (bottom) are a dull green overall with buffy yellow underparts.

A couple more from my second visit. Still didn't get what I want. I need to somehow get a clean dark background. Hmm, something to work on.
Again a little closer in than I would like. But I quite like it all the same. Again, shot -2 stops compensation, & contrast pushed up to make the most of the black-on-black.
