What a gorgeous pigeon you have photographed and one that I am not at all familiar with. I love the multicolored wing patch it carries as well as it's beautiful markings.
I have had a great love for pigeons since I was a young boy and watched my cousins Homing Pigeons fly around the neighborhood.
Thank you for sharing this new bird with me and the other members on TN. Excellent detail and perfectly exposed.

A harmonious composition, a beautiful portrait of this Phaps chalcoptera. The work has a sweet calm, emphasized by the clear dark forest and the apparent serenity of the bird.
