Great shot, I just don't like the BG.

Excellent on the bird, shame about the wire in the background. Detail in the bird are superb.

Great pose, details, colours, sharpness. Pity about wire on BG.

Great shot and beautiful bird! Yes, too bad about wire, but at least it's blurred. Maybe I would crop off the right part of picture, so less of the wire shows. -Jenn

Thanks Alexandre, beautiful bird. Well shot - I love his colourings, especially his blue feet:) TFS

These are some of my favourite birds, I wish I could see one where it lives!
Nice pose. Watch-out for croppinf essential things, like the missing claw.
Also, you could clone or burn the BG to make the wire less clear.
Overall, this is a beaut, TFS

Neat shot Alexandre...I like the details on his/her beak! Appears like flames! I wonder what that thin thing is coming out of it's beak...is it a tongue? Great colors captured here. :)

Excellent capture. The bird is so colourful, with very good details. Good composition. The note probably is very interesting, but I don't understand. Thanks for posting. ziggy

Unha foto bonita. Ainda que a composiciao perde un pouco co pao e o fondo, isto goza de detalhes e cores muito bonitos diste esplendido subxeto. Obrigado.

Nice shot. Although the composition looses a bit with the stick and backgroung, this shows beautiful details and colours of this splendid subject. Thanks.

Very good depth of field. The colours are bright, yet natural to nature. I like the way the beak is open showing the tongue. Very good work. A pleasure to see.

Fantastic shot Alexandre, you have got the colours and details of the bird perfect. The BG would be better without the wire detail, but who's looking at that when you have captured such a good image. well done. Thanks for posting.

Alexandre, mais uma excelent nota nesta bela foto. O tucano, por si, é uma ave muito colorida, e você fez jus aqui à beleza do animal.

Quanto ao fundo, não me incomoda mesmo. Afinal, ele está em cativeiro. Além, do mais, esse mesmo fundo pode ser facilmente eliminado por intermédio de um desfoque no PhotoShop.

Para mim, excelente.

Very well done! I love the bright colors, it's almost surreal. It's a pity you can see the cage, but I like it nevertheless. Very sharp details. Exccelent DOF.
