Turaco In the Wild (Close up)

This is the same bird as in this image. I chanced getting closer and the bird simply watched me as if I were going to reach out and offer it a treat. It really reaffirmed my beliefs that this particular avian used to be somebody's pet that had been freed or simply escaped.

Soon after this photograph was taken, the bird retreated deeper into the bush. Leaves and branches obstructed any further shots of the guy. I watched him and he watched me for at least 5 minutes before I finally lost sight of him in the darkness.
