A perfect portrait (my her majesty appointment :-))! This bird's face always reminds me the face of a Madame in Amsterdam :-)
I add this beauty to my theme "nature's oddities"
Thanks for sharing,
Have a good week

Flawless close-up image with amazing details on the entire subject within the frame.

Wow Peter, today your points stand on a round 41 000! What an achievement. You share a beautiful portrait of this hornbill. The colours are very beautiful, and the detail nice and sharp. I really like the tight close-up. The detail of the eye and bright yellow is excellent. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

The tight frame is putting the bird in evidence. The close-up point of view is showing the détails and colours of the head of the Great Hornbill. The eye contatc is very good. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.

What you've done is simply beautiful. Perfect exposure on the hornbill's head, excellent light management (I like very much the way how you used flash). The colors and details on the plumage are incredible. Even the (almost) blown out patches in the background aren't disturbing either. Excellent job! Hats off!
Best regards, László

what a great portraite of pretty hornbill, with coloration, exposure and focus.
You are lucky to see them in Zuid Holland. Do you remember Egyptian Plover in there?
Thanks for sharing. All the best
