Orange-breasted Green pidgeon

By MikeRC
Hello again... this is a picture of an Orange-breasted Green pidgeon taken from a boat on the Mandovi river during a recent visit to Goa.
It is obviously a true wildlife shot and something of a rarity by all accounts, but while it is one thing looking at birds through powerfull binoculars it is entirely another trying to get a decent picture with a 50-500mm lens from a rocking boat.

Many thanks for your clicks and kind comments on my last uploads.

Thanks for looking....Mike

It's always great to see more unusual species that I would (or will) never get to see. The colours are amazing - if he usually sits in this kind of tree prob good camoflage!
Its a lovely wildlife image in a natural setting, and given the rocking boat and all, a good capture. Like it!

Nice capture, I can only sympathise with you on the 50-500 thingy (they're heavy old buggers)

Considering the circumstances, this is a fine shot, even better in large version.
