    Love the pose and the perch, beautiful colors. They go very well together. Blue and green works nicely.

    Just (I use this word facetiously) another JP classic... Only nit, could go a little brighter, at least on my monitor. TFS

    Hi Joe,

    Excellent capture of this great looking bird. You always get such great poses from these birds. Nice detail, and I like the perch as well.

    A species I would love to photograph someday - now if COVID could just hunker away so we can travel again!. Good overall, and quite sharp, but my main issue here is that the comp is rather tight.

    I like the pose, details and perch. I could see a version with a little more room up top and in front of the bird. I remember seeing them on Merritt Island.
