I managed to get this shot from a platform in the canopy which helped me to get on the same level as the hornbill. I then just had to wait for it to turn round to face me to get the light on his face. I processed this in black and white and then added a vignette.

Unusual to see a bird shot in mono but it works very well. Excellent subject and an excellent photo.
