Hi Paulo,
Amazing shot of this natural beauty. I like the 'Question mark' in the eyes and expression. Nice colors and close-up. Well done and beautifully shot. Hadi

This bird always manages to get a laugh out of me.
He is beautifully colored, but so ludicrously put together.
Sharp image and good POV. Well done and TFS. : )

What a playboy that you have well captured ! Its fave is incredible. Sharpness seems a bit soft... Congratulations Paulo and thanks for sharing.

Very vivid colours on this one Paulo. Also I think you caught well that eye fixing you. It's became the visualisation focus point of the photo.

Regards, Petru

Wow, what a weird bird Paulo :-) I can't say that it is pretty, but looks very interesting for sure. Great colours and big eye.

This is beautiful. The colours,POV and sharpness is excellent. Well done.

Hi Paulo

No time to give a proper critique. Sneaking this in from work. Just a big green smiley!

Who could resist a face like that? What a fantastic capture of this colorful character. :)

Paulo, nunca vi um desses. Como se chama o pássaro?

Talvez, no Photoshop, um pouco mais de nitidez teria sido legal.

Ainda assim, uma bela - e engraçada - foto.

Gosto muito da composição e do ângulo.

How delightful this guy is, Paulo!!

Beautiful colors, on this face with a few extra parts.... ;-)

Great eye detail, and exposure.

Well done and thank you for sharing it with us!
