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.
