The birders will appreciate the feathers, I am appreciating the composition! Beautifully poised, balanced in various ways - off-centre on the diagonal branch and with that serendipitous green lichen echoing the breast feathers.

I always admire Mother Nature for providing the beautiful creatures and colours that we see around but there are times when she exceeds herself and this gloriously plumaged bird is one such.What a fantastic range of brilliant colours this bird displays. Stunning Annette.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Exquisite work, Annette. Fabulous plumage detail, patterning, colours and iridescence and fine sharp eye. Posing on the diagonal on a beautifully detailed mossy perch and composed to perfection, with clean, soft, complementary background tones. Many congratulations on a well deserved GEA and other awards Smile
