Your picture is splendid as the bird!!! Nice natural colors, wonderful bokeh, excellent mastering of the exposition, etc... I like the tail which seems in fire!!! Very well done and presented :)

Hello Fatih,
I have never heard of this particular bird before, so your photo is quite interesting. The contrasting colors are quite beautiful and I love it's black mask and white eye ring.
Detail is superb and exposure is right on the money. The blurred BG keeps you focused on the subject. Well done!!
