[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the most typical birds of Tobago is the colourful Motmot bird.
I saw this "King of the Woods" many times. This photo was shot in the garden of the Arnos Vale hotel.
For more detailed information I refer to a previous posting of the Motmot.

Hi Zeno.
You have shared a very nice colourful picture. I like the composition of your shot, very expressive BG, sharpness of bird's details and framing. Perfect done and TFS,

Very interesting bird, Zeno!
I think that BG is good but somehow taks atention from the bird, first the black area on the left and pink flower with yellow spot. Maybe photoshop can help, I have example but don't know how to show you... not found how to do that.

Interessante foto Zeno!
Belli i dettagli della testa e dell'occhio, peccato non poter ammirare i colori dell'uccello, che devono essere meravigliosi, perchè in ombra.


Hello Zeno,
Wonderful colors throughout the frame..
Well composed, nice POV & pose.
Very good sharpness, detail, and light seen in this beautiful bird, great catch.
Very well done.

Hi Zeno, excelent composition and pose and the pink from the background is perfect to enlighten the dark blue-green from the bird.
Very well done and TFS

Ah... gorgeous colors... and that wonderful mot-mot tail.
Great pose with the head turned back.
Congratulations and TFS. : )

Hi Zeno,
WOW! he is a colorful fellow. I really like the composition and pose here. Beautiful OOF flowers in the backround, and a nice look over the shoulder pose. Colors and detail in the plumage looks great.

Hi Zeno

What an interesting charachter we have here. Love the looking back pose. He is clearly defined from the OOF BG. Nice work here. :-)

Bonjour Zeno,
what a nice view! The compo and the BG are perfect to "cut" the bird off the BG. Very well worked. Congratulations!
