Resplendant Quetzal (Pharomachrus mocinno)

Many people say that the male Resplendent Quetzal (Pharomachrus mocinno) is the most beautiful bird in the world. I’m not sure that I’d go along with that myself, but it’s certainly spectacular! This photo was taken very close to Savegre lodge in Costa Rica, which must be one of the most reliable places to see this amazing bird.
