[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I managed to capture the rather striking iridescent blue wing patch in this image. Those red eyes always make me laugh - as it looks like they've been on a booze bender.
This species has incredible eyesight - move even a whisker when they are approaching you and they will quickly veer off course.
