This is a Rainbow Pitta.

I'm sure you can see (by the tags) that I have cheated ... I took it at the zoo in Sydney. But I've only ever seen one of these birds in the wild, at 30 metres, in tropical rainforest where there is minimal light ... so this was the the best chance I was ever going to get it.

After my few weeks of enjoying EPZ, seeing your lovely photos has made me realise how much I need to upgrade not only my skills, but also my lens! Some of you would have turned this into an award-winning opportunity.

A nice capture, though a tad soft. You shouldn't be afraid to give a bird a bit more room in the frame. By the look of it this is a big crop. Giving the bird a bit more from would, it's true, reduce it's size in the image but at the same time it would appear to be sharper. The key is where has the subject got to go? At the moment it looks like it's in a box and looks a bit cramped. Keep trying, we're all learning.
