An absolute beautiful bird and indeed like a powder brush. Very good detail and composition. I especially like the patterns that differ on the lower and upper body. The beak is in my mind has a lot similarity to the kingfisher'. I might be mistaken. I love the highlight in the eye and was also told that the glint in the eye is a big plus and adds appeal to a photo. I enjoyed looking at it. Thanks for sharing.

Here is a bird we do not have here in the US...and if we do...I never heard. I must go get my European book and look through..A fine bird clearly focused, well noted.. and appears to have a head twice as large in design as was meant for most birds..a rather unusual looking chap!

This is one I have never seen before. A very cute bird with a very big beak. Colors are wonderful. Details of the face and plummage are wonderful. Love the pose on the branch.
He is really unique looking and adorable.

This really is a strange looking bird! Look at this shape! We don't have any specie like this here. This is an original POV with pretty good details and exposure. This blue sky background is perfect.Thanks,

Great capture of an unusual type of bird, on TN anyway and though there are several species of Puffbird I don't think any have been shown on TN before, including the Spot-backed. Nice sharpness, composition and lighting.
Well done and thanks for sharing this one,

WOW ! the Spot-backed Puffbird looks a very
beautiful bird, with its shy eye-contact on you,
with a wonderful light, the warm color tones of
the bird and foreground doing lovely contrast
against the background's sky's cold color tones, TFS
