First thumbnail I went to, and no wonder. This Leiothrix is naturally colourful, but all the more so with this EXPERT presentation. I have looked at it several times. So rich and real, you could pull on that red beak. TG

As you say the noise lets it down a bit, but given the shooting conditions that couldn't be helped.....

What a lovely bird, you managed to make it look so natural, you'd think of a tropical evening rather than a zoo
