    Wow that's a beauty, the more I see of these birds the more I appreciate the features in the bill and plumage.

    This is the headshot I've always wanted of this striking species. Killer exposure, details, lighting, and colors. Maybe a touch more room to the right, but I wouldn't think of changing anything else. Awesome!
