Great shot.This bird is really amazing.
Perfect sharpness& colour composition.
Hey Chris, do you know I've seen shoebill in the wild in Uganda at Murchison Falls National Park.
It was a great day for me because I know it's a rare bird and it was a dream coming true.
What a super close-up of this peculiar bird! Interesting details and I love the look on his "face"! Must try and get to Jurong once more in my life - the park is brilliant.

Thanks for your visit and kind remarks on my recent picture.
This is a lovely image of the Shoebill, so sharp, clear and colourful. I have seen this bird for the first time; it is aptly named because the bill truly looks like a shoe!
TFS and take care.

Looks a bit upset this chap.Reminds me of the "dodo" images in "Ice Age" animation (that my girls watch endlessly!!).The clarity is very good and shows the lovley texture of its feathers.I like its pose.The cut makes it a good portrait.Well done and keep well.

Howzit, Chris. Its been a while I know. :)
This is a stunning portrait with the facial expression adding the impact. It does look menacing though. Very well done.

Really cool shot of this shoebill, the details and colors are fantastic. I really like the stern look on its face, shows lots of character to this really interesting looking bird. :)

This look and this smile!
It seems he's about to do something very nasty (people should run away from me when I look like that)
Very great pic.
