About Violaceous Trogon on wiki

Trogons, the colorful birds of the tropical rainforest. This is one of them. I was always happy when one was close enough to get a shot. But they seemed to like to turn their back on me.

I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
