I have been trying to get a shot of one of these birds for quite some time because they have such beautiful plumage. I took this shot recently through the glass of the back door. Hope you like it.

Exposure: 1/200 sec @ f5.6

Thanks of all your C & C on my last shot. It is much appreciated.

As usual, any critique welcome and it can be viewed large, if you have time.

Thanks everyone for your votes, comments and Jonathan for your GEA. I was really pleased how this shot turned out and I am glad you liked it too. I have taken numerous shots of these birds but this is the first I've been happy with. Thanks again, your support is very much appreciated.
