This is another "weird beauty" and I hope you like it. Yesterday I posted the male bird of this extravagant bird, today you see the female.
For more detailed information about this strange endangered species, I refer to yesterdays posting.

Hello Zeno,

What a strange colorful bird! You mastered the use of the flash in order to have such a great exposition! Details are awesome too! By looking at it, we understand that birds are coming from dinosaurs. I like the dark bg enhancing the closeup. Great picture and TFS,

Hola Zeno.- Otra bella foto, muchos detalles en el pico de esta hermosa ave. Sus ojos y el color azul de su plumaje se ven muy bonitos.

Wow, Zeno. : )
Another amazing bird portrait.
Just as in the male, this female's colors are just as gorgeous.
The contrast between that incredible blue and the black plumage is just magnificent. The details on the beak really stand out. Perfect focus and light.
TFS. ; )

Hi Zeno

The female is just as colourful as the male. A lovely shot against a dark BG. It really enhances the colours. Nice quality work. TFS.

What a coincidence... You dedicate me a picture and I post again at the same moment you do (before I saw your's) :))) Thanks, this is awesome! Wonderful portrait again with great details! Yes, I love her, she is very beautiful and...strange :) Does she have a part of her beak broken? This is very well done again! Thanks for this nice attention.

Best regards,

a lovely colour and detail caught in this post and great crop to bring it out

Hoi Zeno,
Mooie foto van deze vogel. Zeer scherp en de details en kleuren komen heeel mooi uit tegen de donkere achtergrond.
