This is an incredibly beautiful bird, the colours are astounding.
Because there is so much to see in the bird itself there is no need for back ground.
I love natural pictures, partly because they are so difficult to get and also they are none repeatable, no nature pic is likely to be duplicated by camera.
The detail in this photograph is strong, clear and visible.
I have great difficulty in critsising a picture of this quality, nature immiges are some thing that I feel as an observer cannot be changed in any way.
This one is in no need of alteration, cirtainly a bird watchers dream I would say.
The branch is a little out of focus to the right of the picture but I feel that it doesn't affect the view as a whole as the main draw is meant to be the bird.
A great shot and one that deserves recognition, a fabulous bird too.
I think nature gives us a great deal to be thankfull for and your picture shows this, thank you for the time and effort you have given to bring this forward.:iconxpose-it:
