Nice portrait. Every detail can really be seen. The AYES have it.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

Thank you guys, this is first time i shoot this guy ever (very hard to find him). But background is really not very desirable :(.
Here is full picture

Very nice shot. One thing I've recently started doing when a background like this detracts from the bird is to desaturate the green and/or yellow. Just be careful that it doesn't affect the bird itself.

Very nice shot of a very unusual bird.

Those are great shots ! I've got quite a few shots of one like this back a couple yrs ago . They are very fast fliers and i have not caught one in flight yet but still hoping some day . They have beautiful shaped wings and long for their body !
