did he had a bath in ketchup? - Sorry - what a brilliant red, seems as if he's shining from inside out. And what a wonderful pose, a little shy but it seems he is saying - look, I'm such a beautiful bird! - And he is!
Thank you very much, I enjoyed it very much, bye

It's a beauty you have caught. The colours of this bird is amazing. Good details and POV.

PLEASE ONLY TAKE MY BEST PROFILE !
Very stunning picture Alan!
Focus and exposure are perfect. Red bird contrast beautifully with the green foliage. The only change I would do, is to remove (clone out) the little white herb down the photo.
Otherwise excellent picture and TFS.

This bird was waiting and posing for you.
Did you have to pay the bird for this shooting session ?
Therefore there seems to be a halo created by the sharpened all around the bird and especially at the end of the beak. This could have been removed.
Despite this the picture is excellent with nice colors and the funny pose is a bonus.
Well done !!!

Alan bonjour, superbe shot aux couleurs eclatantes et une texture de BG qui convient bien et donne l'impression que l'oiseau s'extirpe de cette botte d'herbe!! Il est toute fois dommage que la patte soit coupée. Overall, superb post. Congratulations Didier.
Just excellent! Pose is superb, colours look perfect and composition is also great. I love BG. One of your best shots!
Manchester or Villarreal ;-) ?

We get a lot of ibises in Australia, but the white ones. The colour in this scarlet ibis is stunning and vibrant. The pose is lovely and the detail is very nice. I also like the background with the grasses. They really push the focus onto the bird. Well captured!

Surely your not old enough to know who Captain Scarlet was!!! One of my favourite childhood shows, and I'm ancient (so my kids say).
Good portrait for a zoo shot. Brilliant colour and sharp. Well done.

Excellent shot on this Scarlet Ibis. I was hoping to get one in Florida, but only saw white ones. The color and detail in this is outstanding. Good composition and framing here. I love it!

Alan, if you don't have the time to take new shots, keep on checking your archives.
This is another superb photo.
Lovely and vivid shades of red. Excellent sharpness, pov and composition.
A very pleasing image with a great visual impact.
Beautiful bird! From her expression I think she likes you, LOL!! Great colors, POV and DOF. Well seen, Alan!
How do you do those fancy frames?

The pose, the eye, lovely colours. He is sweet and nothing can be done with it ;)
As for the "perfect" word. I would use it for the framing, POV and DOF. Couldn't have been better.
I like it very much, of course :)

Hello Alan, this is shot with some impact. The composition is excellent and the blades of the plant in the BG draws even more attention to the subject. I don't know what colour the plant was but to me it looks a little flat, I'd like to see more colour there I think that would only improve the impact. Very well done.
