Nice capture of an Australian Magpie showing sharply against the floral BG and posing nicely on the watering hose. Fine comp and lighting too.
When I was in Australia I liked to hear the sounds these guys made.

Nice image of this Magpie. He posed nicely for you. Lovely colourful background. Like Ivan I love the sound they make but not so much around full moon when one can be woken by them. I have been swooped many a time by them around nesting time. Your image is lovely and sharp with nice lighting.

Hello Tina, :)
Very nice capture of this Magpie, I really enjoy seeing these beautiful birds! Great sharpness and Colours, perfect pose he held for you. Good thing the sprinkler didn't come on! Thanks for sharing, and hope you have a great day!

Amazing offset of this magpie with its iridescence against that beautiful background! Lucky bird that the gardeners didn't turn on the sprinklers. Tfs, J.
PS I appreciate the mention of the "Flute Bird".

Some overexposed areas but it is not disturbing. It is actually even nice to look at in this case.
Nice background enhancing the beauty of the bird.
A natural perch would have been beter than artificial. This is a small nit. The average pic is brilliant.
Like it a lot.

Nice shot. I like the contrast between the subject and the background.

Wonderful image. One of my 'issues' is dynamic range - heavens forbid I end up with black and white in the same photo. I generally lose any and all detail in the black. You managed to avoid this. Great composition as well! Good shot!!!
