This is a superb portrait of a bird that I don't know. Where are your interesting notes today??? This dark BG suits your lovely subject perfectly and details are very nice. It looks like a studio shot. Again, where are your notes? :)))

Really good portrait of this Turaco - I have seen several in the wild, but not this one. I like the lighting and colours.

A very amazing photo. The way the bird seems to pop up out of the dark is very wonderful. How in the .... did you get this result.
Love the details you captured in the feathers and side profile composition.

The central colours of the Turaco against the black BG are amazing. Great sharpness and focus. Very good composition.

A wonderful portrait of this bird that is new to me. It has a very professional look. Beautiful colors against the black background. The eye is just amazing. Beautiful beak and feathers.

Joey Joey...they would be happy here in Washington. We have tones of plantain and the only ones who eat it are the local hippies...and that is no joke. It is an herbal supplement. But that is another story.
This bird is very Regal looking to me in his official portrait you have presented. Very well done sir..I am sure the French love it eh? Les couleurs de France sont vertes rouges et blanches.
OK fella...Great shot and I have bugged you enough for one day.

Great profile portrait Joe,
I like the low key exposure and effect/mood it creates..Nice detail, color, and catchlight also.
