I will confess. I LOVE Antbirds!!! But unfortunately these little buggers are incredibly difficult to photograph. Denizens of the forest understorey they skulk about in the dark realms. The best chance is usually at an antswarm. This guy however was just hanging out in his territory. I was pretty happy with this one given the very difficult shooting conditions.

Hope you enjoy!

Besides the beautiful capter of this bird, I think that the somewhat vague structures in the background add a lot to the overall beauty of this photo. Great shot.

It's not only an artistic challenge but also a technical one…
