Superbe oiseau.
Merci pour le partage.
Joseph

Excellent detail, nice composition, and even though the light is harsh, you were able to work around that. Beautiful photo!

Hi Nyala,
Quite the unusual bird!
Looks like it got hit by a turquoise paint brush
Nice shot well composed and exposed

Hello Nyala,
I think there is a bit a softness issue concerning the bird. Quite personal matter...?
Otherwise most interesting content, very beautiful bird.
