Very good photo Henry. The details are very sharp and the colors are great. Well composed and good POV & DOF. The blue in the bg is great, but I would have cloned out the pipe (?) in the right upper corner as it's a bit disturbing. Well done & TFS!

Hi Henry, Very nice shot of this beautyfull birds. The picture is very sharp and clear. The only bad point is for DOF, a better dof f/10 or higher probaly give a better look of bird side. But it just my opinion. And i agree with sAner, the structure in the right corner is a little bit disturbing. Well done

I have tried to get a decent shot of this critter on two occasions at Monte, without success. Given the setting I don't know how you managed that lovely blue sky. It's a very nice portrait and the eye detail is lovely. It contrasts nicely with the blue and blacks. Nice one.

I like your shot, the colours are wonderful.
I love that blue bird against the blue sky.
I also have a photo of such a bird and I will show it soon. Thanks for the interesting note.

You have done a great job here. Good depth of colour. Sharpness and detail are spot on. Well done. Thanks.
Nice composition with great colours. Good detail especially in the head area. Perhaps an exposure at F/10 would have given better detail in the body. I agree with the previous comments regarding cloning out what seems to be the neck of another bird the upper right corner.
The photo on TE shows the same type of bird in a less conventional pose with more emphasis on the body. The superb plumage stands out in that one. Both photos are great. I wonder which one you prefer.
