Excellent capture of the Greater blue eared starling. Recently I had my first chance to photograph a starling but it was not at all beautiful like yours. This one is very colourful with its metallic blue- green and purple feathers and the POV you have chosen shows it well. The pose with a berry between the beak and the background are excellent.
Thanks for the share,

A great shot! You used the limited DOF in the best way to acieve almost total sharpness of the subject in this capture of a feeding Great Blu-eared Starling. The POV and composition in the foliage of this tree (species of fig?) are superb.
TFS and best wishes,

Nice sharp shot of the bird at the right time while it is holding on to food. Never knew there is a bird with these colors :). TFS.

The Greater Blue eared Starling is common in Kruger National Park. You captured the bird at a precise moment.
Well composed. I like the perch on that tree. I can't identify the tree.

Je moet altijd wat geluk hebben met deze spreeuwen. Wanneer ze precies de juiste positie in het zonlicht hebben, zijn ze schitterend van kleur. Jij had dit geluk. Plus nog eens met een vrucht in de snavel. Prachtige foto in uitstekende scherpte en een uitstekende compositie.

A magnificent capture of this Greater Blue with the food in his beak. His colors are just amazing - the blues and purple with the bright yellow eye are stunning. Excellent details of his face and feathers. A wonderful setting and composition.

Hi Paul. This is a very colourful looking bird. Which you have captured so well showing its shine on the blue/green feathers. The large yellow eye stands out too. Good timing with a large fruit in its mouth. well done TFS.
