I really like this photo! The colors of the bird are beautiful, I really like the way it turned out, the eyes of the bird are really cool! And I love the fact that this photo is focused only on the bird, nothing else in the background.
nice one :)

Such beautiful colours... and that intense stare! What an interesting bird you found here! I've never even heard of it.
It goes without saying that you did an impeccable job with this shot as well. You've really captured the bird's beauty in its colorful feathers and unique red eye.

what a nice photo! I love how you captured the beautiful animal's colors. The eye really stands out to me, it's a great focal point. Though, I think having it right in the middle of the picture is odd, I think it might look better if it was moved around a little bit.

That's amazing on how many pretty colours they have on them, you miss that normally, it's not until you see them in a shot like this where you realise they actually look cool! XD
