Common_Bronzewing2 (Phaps chalcoptera)

The Common Bronzewings are visiting again, they like the birdbath set into the ground rather than the raised one nearby. They are very skittish and difficult to photograph but this female sat in the late afternoon sun long enough to take a couple of shots and pose with head turned.

A great picture that Matt and I love the pose you captured too.

You've got such lovely feather detail and you've managed to get some pretty iridescence too.

Excellent work here lad, thanks.
