Hello Luis,
A gorgeous bird indeed, I love the iridescent colors in its plumage. The focus is very sharp showing the bird off in fine detail. Wonderful eye contact and nice catchlight. The exposure is perfect! Great work!!

Great photo. I really love black birds. Their feathers shine beautifully in the sun
