Great shot- I am so jealous, we have no Birdworlds here!
The most exotic bird I've gotten is a sea gull :) #26733

Carol Sherman

Absolutely marvelous, I've only read about them. #26737

Thank you all for your kind words. I nearly deleted this image as the framing, exposure and background were all wrong. I put it through PS and adjusting the contrast, colour saturation and a little bit of croping and bluring of the background has completely transformed the final image. After resizing I always run my images through the unsharp mask as a finishing touch. #26743
