Hola Mario. Muy hermosa la foto. Otra muy bella presentacion de gran colorido y nitidez.
Me agrada el color de sus ojos y pico. El azul del cielo como fondo le da a tu foto un valor agragado.
Saludos Luis52.

Hello Mario wonderfull pose captured and superb detail even the eye has lots of detail in it. well taken rgds Necip.

hello Mario

i like the point of view of the image
of this wonderful and colourful bird
i like his pose too, and great luminosity on the image



Hello Mario
Magnificent capture of this charming bird. This photo is stunning, and I like the sharpness and details you got on the plumage. The tailpiece of the feathers is really impressive. I like the way you captured the pose showing its profile and the back of the plumage. The combination of blue and black feathers and the yellow of the beak and circle around the eye is a perfect match, resulting in a perfect photo for a perfect bird. Splendidly framed and presented in a delightful manner. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
My best regards.
