What an amazing metallic-colored pigeon. It's the first time I see this bird. And it sems to be quite big!
Amazing nature, what a variety. It's not surprising that this species is hunted.
Thanks also for the interesting note. A little bit to read..:-)
Have a nice weekend

Hi Peter. What a fantastic looking bird. The Nicobar Pigeon, is a bird i have never seen before so thanks for posting on TN. You have taken it with sharp focusing and fine detail. Your use of the light has given bright colours. Well done TFS.

Fine use of the flash for fill. It not only filled but brought out well teh sheen and glow in the coloured feathers. It appears that you have mastered well the flash...something many have not including me. Very nice image and good overall lesson!

The only time I have seen the Nicobar Pigeon is at the Singapore Bird Park in a walk-though aviary and admired its shining iridescent plumage that is well captured by you on this captive bird.
The colours and lighting are superb, but as you know I prefer your bird shots taken in the wild!
Thanks and all the best,

I love the way you captured the iridescence of this Nicobar Pigeon. His plumage is really beautiful and love the way his feathers lay upon him. Sad to hear they are hunted and their gizzards are used in jewelry. A gorgeous pigeon. Good note.
