With all those colors, it certainly needs a new name Alok. There's only a tad of gray on the top of its head. Nothing about all the beautiful colors of this Swamphen.

Fantastic close-up of this spectacular Swamphen. Gorgeous lighting showing great colors and detail and captured in a brilliant setting. TFS Alok & Renu!
