LOL he does look a bit ragged, doesn't he Peter. Is that his tongue or a water droplet at the end of his bill?

A super picture - very well done mate.
This is one fantastic image Peter! The detail and wonderful lighting you've captured it in makes for an awesome image guy.
Brilliantly captured colourful close up you have of this beauty Pete, well done.
No chance for such a beautiful bird here. A splendid picture with excellent detail.
Beautiful image! even if the bird does look a bit upset at having his bath interrupted ;)
Gorgeous picture of this red-eyed beauty. Superb image quality, clarity, and color. TFS Peter!!!
