CommentTopknot pigeons are extremely difficult to get a photo of as they are such a quiet bird and reside in what always seems to be the tallest tree in the rainforest. We were walking along a ridgeline when a flock landed close by giving us a unique opportunity at being eye-level with the birds. It is both an unusual and stunning bird at the same time. Not only is this a nice image but the detail in the bird is also excellent.
