Hi Tom,
Wow I have never seen an image of these birds before. They sure have some amazing feathers. They seem to be very affectionate with each other. Nice focus and blurred back ground.

Hello Tom,
Very beautiful photo of these Barbets in a very pleasing scene. Excellent sharpness, details and natural colours. Good DOF and OOF BG. Taken from a very good POV.

Hallo Tom
Now these are two beauties, the one prettier than the other or are it the other way around? The spots on the plumage are beautiful and the one's in their necklines resembles a lot like that of the Crested Barbet. This is a great shot, with excellent colours and fine details. The composition great, the poses of both pleasant. Overall a very "friendly" image. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
