[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These juveniles without their long tails can be easily mistaken for a Bronzed Drongo but that one has a forked tail. Here's my attempt to show off its lovely bluish black sheen. Exposure details - 1/80 f/8 ISO800 0EV Flash -3.
The recorded habiitat is broadleaved evergreen jungles from 500 - 2590m.

Hi Phil.
Very beautiful. Lovely simple study of this majestic looking bird. Well done.
Regards, Steve.

Nice shot, Phil!
Details and colours are good. ISO-800 1/80 and flash... interesting. Probably too dark environment?
