Hi Christell, How lucky are you, to have access to these lovely birds in Namibia. This is a great capture and the colours are really lovely. Two little tips I may suggest, which will to help improve the shot. The first is to rotate your image to straighten the the horizon line and the second is to lighten the birds eye to give some detail , this will bring the whole image up a tad. I realise this may not be possible if you don't have any software, but even most basic programmes do have simple ways of implementing my suggestions.
Hope you don't mind my suggestions, but I note from your profile that you class yourself as a beginner. If you add to you profile what , if any photo programmes you use, we/I can give you even more detailed explanations on how to correct a large number of issues with almost any photo.
