I never saw this birds befor!
This is a very scary bird, and an excellent shot.
Great sharpness, pose, composition and colours.
Thanks for posting, keep sharing.

This one is new to me. It looks a scruffy little bird but very nice. Well done.

What a strange looking bird, at least for a Far North American eye. And what a beautiful picture, for any amateur eye. Great colors, lighting and BG.

This is a beaytiful shot. I have yet to get a good barbet. I have them nesting in my garden, but no shots of them.
Thesharpness and detail is excellent.

Baie mooi Ben. Long time on my wishlist. A few blurred and a few too far shots is all I managed. This is superb. Great DOF and POV.
Excellent notes also. Very well done.

Ben, ek was die naweek daar vir die eerste keer. Wat 'n belewenis. Ek het vier ure in die aviary gesit.
Beautifull shot. I have one visiting my garden but could only manage to get him on the TV antennae. ;( The light has a nice golden glow to it. Sharp details and a nice pose. There are some hotspots but not distracting. Great shot.

Hi Ben, good shot. Despite their colour these are quite rough looking birds, they look like tough guys. Very good capture and composition. Well done.
