It's a beautiful picture of BEARDED BARBET(Lybius dubius).
I like its colour and POV.I spotted this specie in Gauteng and KNP too.Nice to see it again.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice time,
Soberbia captura de este Lybiys dubius. Muy atractivo el efecto de los rayos de luz focalizándose en distinas partes del plumaje.
Once again a wonderful image taken from a very good angle and POV. Exceptional details and depth of field. You managed perfect this composition with a superb colorful bird and interesting too.....
Thanks for sharing!

Hi George, what a colorful and lovely bird this is :-). I love the details here and the diffused surroundings, the eyes are hypnotizing.

Another impressive picture of one of your colorful birds. What a strange species shown with this superb shot. Composition is at the top, sharpness fine and the blurred background ideal. Thanks for your kind words in your last critique. I'm fine and I hope you too. Happy to see that from time to time you come back to TN. Finally this site will stay like a home for us all who love nature :-)

this is a bird i had always loved (not seen yet.. just one post from a TN member.. Zeno.. see the pic in my favourite-list) and here, seeing that bird again through my you lens.. lucky me :)
good work, George. are you giving in any class? i could fly to SA then! ;)
now serious! :p
what a POV! excellent texture/ tone (so natural! seems like can feel it.. how do you do it?), lovely mood (good timing).. look at the bill..!
good use of light too.
keep it up
