Exotic in Colour
This is the Himalayan Monal Pheasant. Isn't he beautiful. Nice shot. Good light to show his coat of many colours. TFS.

Beautiful show of colour, it's too bad the beak isn't a bit sharper looking.

Superb job with this Pheasant Janice.
Great composition and the colors and the details are great.
Good POV and nice blured BG. Good frame.
I have just recently become acquainted with the Himalayan Monals, and I am in love with them. They are just gorgeous beyond words. Great job through the wire. Isn't that frustrating?
Sharp details and stunning colors. TFS. : )
Did you see the female Monal?

I know this dandy from our Zoo :-) Very proud and self-confident :-) Great shot my friend, especially in these hard conditions. Colours and pose are nice, I like also blurred feathers on its head.
Really nice colors seen in this beautiful bird..Good sharp detail at the head, great framing and POV..I've experienced the same once at a tiger exhibit. The 3 inch spaced vertical slats were not visible in the photo at all..PT
Well done mf and TFS!

It looks great! No doubt, very beautiful bird and very good capture. Pity that the BG isn't very interesting, but I guess the bird is so colourful that it compensates the grey colours of BG.
VERY WELL DONE!

It is a pleasure to see this muti-colored bird. Perfectly presented in every aspects. TFS
Pam's image and note, thankfully, led me to your image of this exotic Himalayan bird I grew up with in my younger days in a sub-Himalayan valley in India.
Your note says it all and Pam too has added a few points about this bird. I feel happy to know it is well protected now and multiplying.
Needless to say, this is a beautiful image of the bird you have posted here.

I spent ages trying to find the ID of this bird back in 2004 when we started and I could not take a sharp picture to save my life. :) You have done so very nicely thought. Lovely bird only seen it once before. Well done.
PS. take a look at my version.. :)
