_MG_1425 Male and Female

_MG_1425 Male and Female

First time I've caught a male and female in the same image. The female, without the red stripes on either side of the base of the beak, is on the right. The male, unfortunately, is hidden - but it WAS a male!

This image is heavily cropped. I chose the 17-55 because of the distance between the subjects.
