15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Bachelor

This is a photo of a White Bearded Manakin in a Miconia tree. When the berries of this tree become full, they are a favorite of many birds including the White Bearded Manakin. This little guy was here alone, and looks as though he is in his tuxedo waiting for his dinner date in the low light ambience of the tree.
