    Andreas:

    Lovely iridescent plumage, good shooting perspective, well exposed. A bit busy in the foreground, but of course, that is where it hangs out.

    Thanks Randy , glad you like it . Yeah the FG is a bit busy ... but as you say that is part of the habitat . No chance to go lower ... at that point to overcome the busy FG .

    Andreas, man is this one handsome! Can't beat the colors coming through on the wings and rump with the light angle.

    Do like the view in the habitat but there's the age-old challenge of grasses and weeds behind when the dof is too deep. Sort of a give-and-take.

    Definitely love to see more of this species... tfs.

    Love the soft light and the colors but not where it chose to stand -- looks like coffee grounds ...

    Looks great to me, I really don't get all the reservations over the background - hey that's where it was and the scene looks perfectly natural as opposed to a clinically prepared scene with flawless background. I am becoming more and more keen on images showing subjects typically in situ - i.e. as we usually see them.
