Very nice shot Chris.
Good colours and details.
Extraña y atractiva ave.
La combinacion de colores entre las alas y el resto del cuerpo es muy llamativa.
Buena perspectiva y encuadre.
El foco es bueno, aunque aparenta ser un tanto soft.
Realicé un Workshop con algunos cambios... espero te agrade.
Strange and attractive bird.
The combination of colors between the wings and the rest of the body is very showy.
Good perspective and frame.
The focus is good, although it somewhat pretends to be soft.
I made a Workshop with some changes... I hope pleases to you.

I have heard of them but never seen one before. What an animal. Nice pose and composition. The turned head and the eye gives it "flare". Great shot.

What a stately bird, I love the full body shots, it really brings the bird to life, thanks for sharing

Wish I had the time to browse more. I know so many of the names, but they are all different birds. This one I can recognise by the jist, we have 5 in SA, but I have only seen two so far. We - thats my family, call them duck-and-dive birds, because of their habit to try and hide behind leaves and twigs. Thanks for sharing!

A very strange looking bird it is, the head looks crow like but not alot else does. Great capture Chris, well done.

Chris, Interesting looking bird here. Looks almost like what we call a road-runner except for the dark head/chest. Great pose/head turn captured very well in its natural habitat. Well done!

Very nice capture! I like its pose a lot. The sharpness is good and so is the exposure.
Thanks for posting and points later
Chris, wonderful bird. Here in Brazil there's a similar one, although with brownish feathers, I've been trying to shoot for quite a long time. So far, I was not successful.
POV and sharpness are great here. Good note too.
