Hello Luis,

A cute portrait of this nosy little fellow!
It is a fine pose and the point of view exposes the plumage nicely, great colour reproduction and sharp details...
Accurate DoF makes the subject stand out well!

Hello Luis,
This is the best photo of this species I've ever seen. I think there isn't a good photo of this kingfisher at all. It's the first on TN for sure. Congratulations.
The colours and sharpness are very good in a nice composition. Lovely green BG.
I hope you got a lot more of endemics from the Philippines.

Hallo Luis
A great capture of this brightly coloured bird. A very good close approach, showing clear and sharp details on the plumage, polkadot eye and the lovely paws. A truly sensational, beautiful and classy bird. Great in sharpness, lighting, composition and focus. Thanks for sharing. A well deserved 10/10 in my opinioun. Kind regards
