Very nice shot of a KF I've yet to see in the field.... congrats, Phil. This bird is ranging also in our southern island of Palawan, and it's on my most-wanted list. :)

Such a beauty. Lovely colours & a lovely looking bird. Clean BG to go with.

Great bird and shot as is. I might crop from the left a bit and remove the little curly thing on the perch to the right though.

I would like to see a shot of this bird with a little more bill profile, as this bill looks to be massive! It's a treat to see these species from your part of the globe! Dan Brown

Very nice image, bird, BG. I am that if you have the RAW file then can make it even better. Good job.
