Welcome to EPZ Paul.

This is a first rate bird shot, great light, eye catchlight, pose and colour all beautiful.

I would only suggest as a minor point to remove the piece of twig crossing the chest, as in the mod Ive loaded. Also, - make sure you convert your colour profile to sRGB for the web.

An absolutely stunning shot, Paul, with excellent background. I have gone a bit further than Willie in my modification. I removed the twigs either side of the bird's body because they seemed to be "propping him up".

Thank you. I saw many of these beautiful birds, unfortunately the photo doesn't do it justice. Fantastic colours, especially when in flight!
