A very sharp capture of this colorful bird in such a wonderful pose. Perfect lighting enhancing the multi colored plumag of this particular bird.
Good use of shallow DOF with the second bird in the BG, blurred but very complimenting.
My best regards,

Wow, you must have been in bird heaven!! :)
Great placement of the bird in the frame here, with his partner blurred in the distance. Nice sharp features and great colors.
I think this might be a Wood Duck Dilshan. Check it out online and see if you think I might be right.

Perfect picture with a well suited title, dear Dilshan!
The colors of the bird are so beautiful and its strong positioning within a natural frame is well thought.
The sharpness and DOF are marvelously done, and colors are natural.
Great BG too.
Thanks and regards,

A crystal clear image of this bird. The POV with the offcenter capture is awesome. Not sure myself. If is walks like a duck, if it sounds like a duck........it must be a duck. he he he have a good day

Another great shot taken with your monster lens. I say monster because it is quite big (like my 150-500 Sigma anyway), but they are nice monster. Ther serve us well with reach and quality. A well balanced composition where the male is sharp and where we can his female in the BG. Beautifull work and TFS
