Great Picture Peter.
Really nice POV and really well sized.
Colours are beautiful

Beautiful capture. The contrast between the eye, the body and the background is really nice. TFS.

Hi Peter,
I like that shinny dark/blue colour. Excellent pose. Nice sharpness as well.


Ha Peter,

schitterende foto van deze prachtige vogel
de glans is perfect maar het rood zie ik niet
Mooie compo met goede scherpte en kleuren

TFS Thijs

What a beauty, Peter, and I think he knows it too.
He is definitely showing you his better side, with his gorgeous iridescent blue feathers.
Great pose and POV, with sharp details.
Love those yellow eyes against the blue.
TFS. ; )
