What a crazy looking bird...I guess his mother still loves him! Really nice capture. I like the contrast between the punchy colours and sharp foreground with the muted soft backround. Nice control of fill flash...although just on exposure max out on the beak.

I think you are mistaken, Elvis never looked this good...
Superb colors, details, exposure, POV and BG.
That is one interesting mug shot, and I very much like the great eye contact with that great eye...
Wonderful posting, thank you for sharing it with us!
Have a great weekend!
Hi Loot, well done! Really wel sharpness, lovely colours and good background, is it another lens?
I was wondering how you get the words in your comments in Italic?
Have a nice weekend. Reina

Now who is this charmer? He sure knows how to appeal to us women. : P
That hairdo is to die for, and his vivid colors are definitely out to attract some attention.
I really like the way you cropped him, Loot, and the exposure is just perfect. You managed to keep the beak from OE, a pitfall that I have a hard time overcoming. And I love the name you gave him. TFS. : )

How long did it take you to glue that wig on? Just kidding :) Beautiful close-up shot of this creature. Great capture of nice, vivid colors, textures, and details. Nicely framed as well.

Great shot Loot,
Very quick visit.
Well worth a big Smile.
Thanks for posting, have a great weekend.
Désolé, pas le temps de traduire aujourd'hui.
Le titre est amusant. Elvis a de quoi être jaloux. Dommage qu'on ne puisse voir les déhanchements de cet oiseau.
Love me tender, love me sweet, never let me go.
You have made my life complete and I love you so.
Love me tender, love me true, all my dreams fulfill.
For, my darlin', I love you and I always will.

Haha, Loot, what a wonderful hairstyle, and the colours of this bird are so strange.
I love it so much, thanks for sharing

Le portrait est parfait Loot.
La coiffure de l'oiseau est superbe et les couleurs du plumage sont éclatantes. Félicitation pour le Bg propre qui fait bien ressortir le sujet.
Bravo pour le beau travail du flash.

He definitely looks like a rocker, I would have to say from the Thompson Twins or more somewhere in the era, but otherwise a great portrait shot of this goofy looking bird. :)

What a great portrait! The colors in this are very vivid and beautiful.
I always knew that Elvis was alive and living somewhere in disguise.
Very nice sharp detail and a great OOF backround.
Will revisit for pts.

those colors are amazing as well as the sharpness. Great job with the POV and setting him free from the BG. Wonderful composition. Your note is very informative.. thank you.

Long Live the KING!!
Nice one Loot, you show the Guinea fowl so well. I saw some of these birds here, and when I looked up on Google about them I never realised that there were so many different sorts of them. Such strange little creatures.
Good portrait, sharp and colourful, quite a 'pretty boy' here. TFS...

WoW! Excellent colors! Great details, composition, light. Perfect DOF and POV! Well done!

Great shot Loot! I know from experience that it is not that easy to take a good shot of Guineafowl: when eventually you manage getting close enough, they invariably succeed in messing up your picture in one way or another.
Tfs and good luck at the Umgeni bird park.

Jy sê die knaap het daarop aangedring om 'n 'celebrity star' op TN te wees. Wel jy het die naam reg want dit is verseker 'n Elvis haredos wat die voël op hom se kop het en met al die 'make-up' aan kwalifiseer hy wraggies as 'n pop ster. Hy maak my nogal aan Nataniel dink, maar die tarentaal het egter meer hare as Nataniel.
Dit is 'n pragtige portret skoot van die vreemde voël. Ek het nog nooit so een gesien nie en dit is nou sommer regtig 'n aangename onmoeting.

Ai Loot - al wat hierdie outjie kort is 'n paar mooi oogwimpers!! Baie mooi foto. Ek dink hierdie voel sal mens nogal kan seermaak.

Superb display of colour. Excellent camera work and a real feast to the eye. Every little detail is just great. From the pitch black feathers on the head, right down to the pale blue in the neckline. This is really outstanding, and I just cannot get over the colours. The black is really black and the red is really red. The shine captured in the feathers on the head is a smacker and really reminds me of Elvis’s greasy hear. I am sure he sounds like Elvis to. Good focus and framing applied and image presented in a delightful manner. Thanks for sharing.
