Good profile shot, nice exposure and detail.
Amazing portrait of this beautiful bird. Colors, focus and sharpness is great.The brown blurred BG is in a very good contrast with the bird's colors.He looks very proud and self-confident. A portrait of an Ancient Greek warrior with an helmet!
do you have a picture of the entire bird ?
it's a pheasant of the S and SE Asian genus Lophura, could be L. ignita (crested fireback)

Qu'elle espèce extraordinaire. C'est la première fois que je vois cet oiseau! On dirait qu'il est prêt pour un bal masqué :-) Les détails, la prise de vue et l'exposition sont parfaits; une réussite! Merci,

Very nice portrait. Unusual subject I don't think I have seen it before. You might consider framing this as a portrait it will improve the composition. Well done.
