Hi Chi
You show this interestingly patterned bird very well against the darkish BG. I love that great big yellow eye. I will soon upload a photo of a 'Spotted Dikkop' which is a close relative to this bird of yours.
Your composition is fine, the colours are natural, the details are well defined, and the exposure was well managed.
Good work and TFS.

Bonjour Chi,
Un oiseau bien étrange pour nous que vous nous présentez aujourd'hui.
Photo réussie pour ses couleurs naturelles, les détails de son plumage et la composition. Belle lumière aussi.
