    Beautiful colour palette on this one Joe, great light. Head angle and details just about perfect, pity about the body position

    I love the HA and colors in this shot. I agree that the body position isn't ideal, but the face and bill are razor sharp. I'm not familiar with this species, but did you lighten the iris - it looks a bit too bright to my eye but it could be entirely natural. Well done, Joe!

    The plane of focus is just about perfect the colours and details are excellent. the bill could have gone glassy and shiny but you have controlled it well. Super shot Joe!

    I like this a lot, one of your best close-up... I like the goofy eyeball.
