I love this photo - how you've managed to capture all of the amazing colour and the perfect angle. Stunning depth of field

Thanks for taking time to comment.
Magpies are often considered to be pests and generally ignored as a photographic subject. The translucent colours of their plumage along with other corvids I find fascinating but difficult to capture. I confess that I was concentrating on trying to get a picture where the eye was visible and not burning out the background which is an issue with black and white subjects.
Next objective is to get the green colouration on the wings as well .
