Hi John, Good clear photo of the figbird eating berries in the tree. Standing on a picnic table was a risk for a good photo, i may not have been so brave! Good result. I especially like the yellow colour. TFS. Murray.

Yes, the taxonomy is still confused on this one. Some day they will figure it out.

Hello John. Thanks for deciding to share this with us here in TN. I wouldn't be as brave as you are standing on the picnic table with eyes through the viewfinder but you have managed the essential in excellent sharpness. You focusing must be excellent to pick out the sharpness of the head and leaving the busy foreground busy. This is actually rather unique rather than full body exposure as it depicts the natural habitat of this species. Well done and best regards. Jusni

The POV is very good,and the fact you have managed to capture it eating the figs makes this a good documantation shot.

Wonderful shot of this Figbird almost hidden behind the criss cross branches. Nice colours and sharpness with superb lighting and a great POV. I liked the way it has managed a mouthful. Excellent composition. Kudos.

10/10 for fetting through the branches to gget a clear shot of the bird's face as he eats his fig. It's an unusual shot, and one I think works really well.

You show the bird in the habitat well!
Seems like he's enjoying some fruit or berries, with his mouth full of delicate eating...
A well balanced composition!

Your note has a lot of information. The yellow figbird is well framed by the branches. The details and colors of the bird are clear and precise. There is a good contrast between the colors. Have a nice day.
