|The adult male Black-naped Monarch is about 16 cm long, and is mainly pale azure blue apart from a whitish lower belly. It has a black nape and a narrow black gorget. The female is duller and lacks the black markings. Her wings and back are grey-brown. There are however several geographically separated breeding populations that differ in the extent and shade of markings.|

My neighbour of today. This is an stunning, colorful, beautiful little bird. Good pov with clear sharp detail. Well done and tfs.
Have a great week.
Seen this exotic bird for the first time, Raja, and it is gorgeous. What a beautiful blue colour!
IMHO, the excessive space above the bird could be cropped off for a more compact composition.
Thanks and all the best!
