Greater Blue-Eared Glossy Starling
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I had captured this 'Greater Blue-Eared Glossy-Starling' (Lamprotornis chalybaeus) in Kruger National Park during our staying at Olifant Camp. This is a woodland bird and very common in Kruger. They are restless so need perfect timing to get good DOF. To me 'Eye' is very essential when capturing animal. Here bird was sitting facing back towards me and I waited for perfect timing. I like this bird due to its beautiful colour.|

A nice colorful bird with such amazing bright iridescent blue colors.
As usual a professional capture with perfect details of the eye.
The branches are helping to frame the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Greater Blue-Eared Glossy Starling. The good luminosity is enhancing the beuaty of the colors. Have a nice day.
