Hello good compo and nice shot of this amazing bird that I've seen quite all days during my trip in Namibia.
Colors and sharpness are great.

A charming composition which also gives us a good idea of its size thanks to your inclusion of its dinner apple. Perfect POV, great dof and fine colours

Beautiful portrait and pose. The detail is sharp and the colours are perfect.

Hi Biswarup.
