It’s taking forever! but this is the 6th picture for the ‪#‎challengeonnaturephotography‬ Thanks to Bill Eden, Chris Mills, Gorka Gorospe, Marie Travers and Juan Jose Ramos Melo for their nomination.

This is a Yellow-throated Toucan from Costa Rica. Popularly considered gentle and kind fruit-eaters, which they are, they can also be very efficient when stealing eggs and chicks from nests. Proteins!
