[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Wompoo Fruit-Dove is identified by its large size, rich purple throat, chest and upper belly, and yellow lower belly. It has mostly green underparts, with a paler grey head and a conspicuous yellow wing-bar. It is perhaps the most beautiful of all the doves found in Australia, and both sexes are similar in plumage. Birds from the north are smaller (35 - 45 cm) than those in the south (up to 50 cm). The call is a deep resonant "wollack-a-woo" and, occasionally, a more abrupt "boo". Young Wompoos are duller and greener than the adults.

Lindo pássaro belo trabalho com composição e cores muito boa meus parabéns.

Hello Biswarup,

Excellent captured with beautiful colored plumage. First time I'm watching this species.
But hallows or a kind of patch; surrounded tails, head, back and even beak area. Useful NOTE too,
Best wishes and have a nice evening,

Hello Biswarup,
lovely capture of the dove, i liked the eye contact very mich, good details of the plumage and a pleasing composition.Regards Sigi

The halo around the bird is wasting a pic which is looking as it was fine before the post processing. This deserves a rearrangement and repost TMHO.
