  3. Lovely shot, lovely bird, but I can't help thinking it has the wrong head on. All that glorious colour in the body...and a brown head! Nature is curious. Great species introduction, lucky you! Posted 4 years ago

      1. Don't forget - birds can see colors that we cannot, in the ultraviolet spectrum, for example, so it might look very different to its own kind. Great photo by the way of a very challenging bird! Posted 2 years ago
  4. Beautiful! Pittas are not easy to photograph! Posted one year ago
