Female Red-billed Leiothrix (Leiothrix lutea)

By FeatherFriend
Here's another shot of a Female Pekin Robin. I already have one of these in my PF but I think this one is slightly better, hope you like it.
Version 2: I have included this to show the beautiful markings from the back.
Many thanks to you all for sparing the time to vote and comments on my Juvenile Starling, much appreciated,
Regards,
Geoff.

Hi Shaun, tried the canon lens but found that 'ASDA's own brand was far superior LOL.
