Species: Double-toothed Barbet | Location: Bahir Dar, Ethiopia
We had the afternoon off in Bahir Dar. I decided to wander around the resort and look for birds. My wanderings took me out to the parking lot where there were a bunch of guards. They saw I was trying to photograph birds and started spotting for me. They pointed out two Double-toothed Barbets, but they were not in a very good position. I took photos anyway. Finally one flew to a tree with much better (although not ideal) lighting and I took the shot.

About The Photographer
I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
