[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
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.

Hello Rajah,
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!
