What an excellent capture of this odd looking bird. The light was a little harsh but you have managed it very well. Perfect DoF isolating the bird from the BG. :-)

I do not think this is one of the most beautifull birds I have ever seen, but this might be true for the picture: lovely compo with flower and bird, great sharpness, very nice catchlight, perfect exposure:

Hello Stuart & welcome to TN.
Striking image. Excellent sharpness, detail, DOF, POV, composition, BG, and notes..The difficult light was handled well..
Very well done.
Although not one of the most beautiful birds I've seen sofar :), this surely is one of the most beautiful bird images I've seen sofar.
Greatly captured on those wonderful flowers.
Composition, lighting and sharpness are spot on.
The pleasing soft background, feather details and catch light in the eye of the bird are most wonderful.
Thanks for sharing, the great note and the sound to wich I did listen a few times.
Seems like these birds are trying to talk like a parrot :)
Have a nice Sunday,
Excellent capture of a Noisy Friarbird, sharp and well-composed with the orange flower against a contrasting OOF natural BG.
Fine lighting and colour. Never got close enough to this species to get a decent shot.

This picture is absolutely beautiful! A wonderful capture of a bird I have not seen before. We may not think he will win a beauty contest but he looks very pleased with himself. Wonderful colors, sharp details, good background and a fantastic composition.

Hi Stuart, this is an awesome, dare I say beautiful, shot of a very ugly bird. I saw these guys in when I was up your way last month. This composition of yours is excellent. The bird almost looks like part of the bouquet. Your lighting, colour and detail are all excellent. I love that eye.
