I am waiting longer now to get the irridescence on the wings. This is a very nice picture and shows him veery well. This is originally a forest species, hence the loud call. We say these birds suffer vrom vertigo, they always give these horrible yells when flying.

I hope that you do not have irrigation pipes close to this guy - you might just have an additional sprinkler! :) Your lawn must look great in summer! This is a great shot of this common bird displaying the colorful tint on the wings. I usually find them between me and the sun. Very nice post

Very nice one, Gerhard - captured in a very interesting pose that makes him fill the frame well, and allows the viewer to study the glossy-looking detail on the plumage. I also like the sparkle in his eye, and the contrasting colors. Well done.

A very good capture.
Nice composition and good colourful detail.
I like the shimmer on the wing surface.
I'm very envious of your lawn too!
The only visitors we seem to get on ours are slugs and snails :0)

I never seen this bird before,
I love the colours of it, the composition is okee, the note is great again, very good job Gerhardt.
Raro especimen Gerhard.
Muy buena perspectiva y colorido.
Tal vez la parte superior de la imagen podria ser menor.
Instructiva nota tambien.
Me atreví a realizar un trabajo... espero sea de tu agrado.
Rare specimen Gerhard.
Very good colorful and perspective.
Perhaps the superior area of the image could be smaller.
Instructive note also.
I dared to make a workshop... I hope you like it.
