Hello Peter !
These are such wonderful birds - I love this unusual blue color and the red cheek of the male. They are gorgeous creatures. Excellent details, nice natural colors, beautiful composition, maybe a lower POV wouldhave been nice, but I know that sometimes it's impossible. The picture is wonderful as it is. Very well done !

Hola Peter,
Una bonita especie, que si no estoy equivocado pude ver y tengo alguna mala fotografia en Uganda. Bien por la parejita.
Saludos cordiales.
