[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
From my trip to Ecuador.

Barbets are found in northern South America, southern Central America, sub-Saharan Africa, and south and Southeast Asia. They are found mainly within tropical Africa.

Barbets inhabit lowland tropical forests and forest edges. Some species, especially the African ones, are found in secondary forests, parklands, and urban areas that contain fruiting trees. Other species live in drier thorn bush habitats with large termite mounds. Barbets like dead wood for digging out nesting holes and to perch on all year-round.

Barbets are fruit eaters, but young barbets need high protein diets and therefore feed on insects. Where available, the fruit, nectar, and blossoms from avocado, banana, fig, mango, papaya, and pepper trees are eaten. Also, ants, beetles, larvae (LAR-vee), bird eggs, centipedes, lizards, locusts, snails, spiders, termites, worms, and young birds are eaten. They are often found foraging around thickets, ditches, and outbuildings.

Hi Peter. When I saw the thumbnail of this I didn't think much of it. ...but now seeing it large, it looks absolutely amazing. The details are over the top good. Colours are spectacular and lighting bang on. Wonderful! Can I ask how far from the bird you were? TFS Trevor
