    Beautiful detail and colours absolutely fascinating.
    I don't know if you applied lens correction but there appears to be a little green bleeding/aberration on the neck and back.

    Wow. That looks almost reptilian. Handsome closeup. The bluish cast jumps out at me; see what others say.

    What an interesting highly detailed capture, Joe. I do see a bit of blue cast, but I'm captivated by the beak, lore, and eye sharp detail.
