A warm welcome to TN, Justin.
What a fantastic shot of this beautiful tropic bird.
Did he fly in right under you?
I wish there were a bit more space around him, so I can see him whole.
I love the design made by the tail feathers.
Did he have very long tail feathers sticking out in the middle?
The wavy patterns on his back are so pretty too.
Can't wait to see more wildlife from Cape Verde.
Thanks for sharing.
