SUPER SHOT, THEY CAN BE QUITE CAMERA SHY AND IT IS DIFFICULT TO GET A SHARP EYE AND CATCHLIGHT.
IN THE SUNLIGHT THEY HAVE INCREDIBLE COLOURS IN THIER PLUMAGE.

Stunning image all around-- Can't figure how you ever metered for this bird-- White and black, had to be difficult-- incredible details--

So very well done!

This is super. Your exposure is spot on, and the the low angle has made your image really interesting.

Now I know these are not easy to shoot and you have done remarkably well to get detail in both the black and white feathers which shows excellent exposure. Spot on.
