Thanks Dan. As I said to Subash - I'll have to try the tripod. My arm became quite tired after lifting that lens for half an hour. Vervet Monkeys have become quite common in urban areas, even getting into houses & cars if they get the chance. The smaller Hornbills (yellow billed, red billed & grey) are quite common but the much larger Trumpeter is seldom seen far from major river courses. We occasionally get some in town when the figs are ripe. They make a loud, nasal, baying sound much like a donkey.

"(There were monkeys & Trumpeter Hornbills in the same tree this morning)"

That is a phrase seldom heard in my circles.  <G>

That is a fine image, Alan!

Not the best image but OK for ID. There will be better days. Green bird
always on the move in green foliage . I took about 30 shots over half an
hour - this is the best. Range about 30m. (There were monkeys & Trumpeter
Hornbills in the same tree this morning)
