Not one of your best as the background is very busy and the light difficult. The bird is certainly very elegant though with its red beak and long tail. I expect it's one that's hard to capture.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Interesting bird and beautiful photo with good composition and good sharpness. The bird is in the shadow George. I am sure that you can improve the lighting in the photoshop.

On your balcony you didn't have the best angle du take a shot of this elegant bird. But as a brilliant technician you made the best out of it. And the lovely purple flowers try to steal the show to your bird..I don't mind. It just forces people to look a little bit closer!

What the pictorial surroundings are around your house. Nicely blurred flowers decorate the image so much. The thick trunk and tree branches underline an elegance of the bird excellently. Despite the difficult light conditions you managed to reproduced the dark colouration of the bird and tree bark very well. Best regards and TFS.

I do have seen these birds for several times in African countries, but didn't have the chance to make a good photo of them. I think they are very shy. So very nice to see you succeeded. Not in the best position, but a very beautiful photo in good sharpness and a good composition.

Hello Friend George,
what a gift for you. To have this beautiful bird is not that easy. I like the contrast of the beak with the surroundings, and it very well seen. The shot would be perfect id its shiny eye is obviously seen.
Such an elegant bird well seen with long tails and further enhanced with red bourgenvillea.
A nice catch.
