Looking Regal

By mialewis  
They are such beautiful birds with a massive array of colours & textures - it's so sad people massacre them in the name of "sport", and some shoots get so many that they bury them after they've been shot!

I agree. Such beautiful creatures. My little grandson could not believe it when he saw some for sale. This is a beautiful portrait I hope he keeps safe.

Great image; love the detail, colours and DOF; a little shame that he's facing slightly away.

I have a great love of these birds because I used to use their feathers in craftwork and always found incredible pleasure in each individual one. This is a great portrait, colourful and vibrant.

Expertly captured. Sharp detail on the lovely bird and beautifully clear and contrasting background.

Crisp detail and colour. Works well against the fuzzy green background.
