Hi Zeno,

Love the composition, DOF and sharpness. The blue bird could easily disappear in the green background, yet it still catches the eye. Well done.


Interesting. The colors of blue and green are natural and nice. It's a very beautiful bird that's in a nice photographic position.
I do feel that you could crop it tighter. May i suggest a workshop. :)

Nice shot, detail and exposure are good, taken in its natural environment, well done.

Hi Zeno,
What a unusual bird! Something is certain, we don't have them here :) I'm really amazed by this so bright blue color. I like this composition and the fact that you caught it while eating a mango :) It seems to be delicious. Details are very good too. TFS,

Hi Zeno,
what a georgeous little bird. Very nice capture and interesting to see it eating mango. POV, colors and details are wonderful.

Hi Zeno,

What a nice picture of the bird in its habitat busy feeding. Very well done.
