Superb detail, exposure and composition !! Such a striking looking bird !!
I have always loved the look of this bird, and wished for one, but sure won't see one without venturing very far from home!
Great shot of this lovely bird. Super detail, nice lighting and love the pose.
that is a very interesting shot!
I will be visiting my daughter tomorrow so no comments till Friday
Great composition! A very interesting and unfamiliar bird!
I've heard of this bird, but never seen one 'til now. Interesting the way the feather top-knot seems to balance the extra long beak, at least in this pose and POV
Nice Light. Like Your Composition and Natural Framing....
Terrific shot of a bird that is completely new to me!
