What a archived, Brazilian beauty. A showpiece at its best. Wow, this is beautiful. The colours of the plumage is spectacular and, and, and. I am suddenly lost with words. A pretty bird, which you have captured with style and pride, and yes, the words came to mind. I stylish and very elegant bird with an assortment of colours in the feathers to be proud of. And I am sure you are just as proud of this image as the bird you have captured. If this was mine, I would certainly been very proud and chuffed with myself. I like it a lot. Thanks for digging this one out of the archive.

Your archives hide treasures, Peter.
Thanks for taking this gem out and sharing it.
The bird looks very attractive with those bright and shining colours on it.
The picture is first rate, technically.

Great to see this fine close-up of a Violaceous Euphonia taken from your archives. I have seen this species in Trinidad but that was when I was just a bird watcher and not a photographer. The technical quality, composition and colours are excellent and the POV makes this a fine portrait of this species.
Thanks and best wishes,

At first I thought you had cut off his tail but I looked in the big size and I saw it was only the perch. The colors are excellent. The position of the bird is wonderful. You have done very well in this image.

Supongo que una especie difícil de capturar, al menos yo creo que no la había visto nunca. Lástima del ligero desenfoque ya que los colores son estupendos así como la correcta y dinámica pose del ave.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

really such a beautiful presentation. The colours are lovely and the sharpness is so good.
The diagonal positioning of the branch is effective and the bird on the corner is well positioned.

This is a lovely photo from your archives!
The colors on this cute bird are absolutely stunning - vibrant and contrasting - making it an excellent candidate for such a photo.
You managed to capture it well, with good details and especially that blurry uniform BG behind.
I also really like it pose - tilted forward like that - which actually adds a little dynamism to this composition, in my opinion.
Nicely seen and taken!
Bravo and TFS
