I don’t have a gallery on here but I don’t think you photographers realise what a pleasure it is for us non-gallery folk just to enjoy browsing wildlife photos, particularly when they are such excellent work as this! Thank you 🙂

PS there’s nothing in OPUS for this species - this would be a good edition imo.

Dear Deb,
I try my best to unravel the hidden colors and plumage patterns not so easily seen of birds I meet on my way. It gives me great pleasure. But to make other persons happy on seeing the photos doubles my well being. I am very thankful for your kind words.

Indeed he does have beautiful colours Luiz, and this will be another of your pictures to go to The Opus. Many thanks my friend.

BTW I have corrected a minor spelling error in the scientific name you used..... it is squammata with a double m and only one t LOL

Thank you for correcting, dear Delia.
You see, little by little grew in my an urge to show the hidden beauties of colors and patterns only visible when there is movement. Generally I do not look for rare birds, but try to do it with any bird, be it common or not. This is what makes me happy, and if this contributes with this site, more happy I feel. I send photos to other websites, but in the majority of them people does no seem to have value for these details that I mentioned.
