Back claw! Yep, huge. A weapon?

Not sure if I commented, but this is really eye catching and beautifully photographed.
A very striking bird

Amazing colours and detail

These birds are really attractive IMO.
That claw reminds me of fighting cocks!
Lovely photo

Incredible!! Sharp as a tack, Shalu. I'm assuming you're using a tripod to get this kind of sharpness with stacked TCs.

Thank you very much, Mike! I believe I did use tripod for that shot.

Beautiful shot from your new Fuji, Robert! I got a new M6 II to play with, but didn't get a chance to go out yet.

Note: the EXIF info for my recent images shows "Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS". I'm actually shooting an FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS lens. The POTN gear database needs to be updated.
