Anyways gave it the vote and the favorite, I would google plus it too, but I guess you don't have an account? I just opened one! I love the colors of his tail, and the longness of it.

. . love the plumage and long tail tip . it is so adorable . . the first I have seen of these lovely birds so I googled it . . it is fascinating how they use the tail to display and communicate . . . there is an interesting article on wikipedia - "Motmots often move their tail back and forth in a wag-display that commonly draws attention to an otherwise hidden bird. Research indicates that motmots perform the wag-display when they detect predators (based on studies on Turquoise-browed Motmot) and that the display is likely to communicate that the motmot is aware of the predator and is prepared to escape. This form of interspecific pursuit-deterrent signal provides a benefit to both the motmot and the predator: the display prevents the motmot from wasting time and energy fleeing, and the predator avoids a costly pursuit that is unlikely to result in capture" end quote . . amazing . . beautiful work Nina . it must have been wonderful to see it in it's natural habitat :)) http://fineartamerica.com/groups/dimensions.html http://fineartamerica.com/groups/tropical-art.html http://fineartamerica.com/groups/fine-art-photography.html http://fineartamerica.com/groups/greeting-cards.html http://fineartamerica.com/groups/starz.html http://fineartamerica.com/groups/birds-of-the-world.html http://fineartamerica.com/groups/square-format.html
