A brilliant pose and a colourfully lit close up you have of this beaut KC, well done.
 
You absolutely nailed it KC. Outstanding clarity, color, and focus!! Excellent work. Lucky you, I have never seen one of these in the wild.

Wonderful lighting KC and this elegant, beautifully coloured bright-eyed little bird is captivating. I'm looking forward to more pictures of this species.

(Like Daniel I've never seen one. I did drive nearly 200 miles for one in Britain, only to arrive half a minute after the final sighting of it :confused:. Still, it's all the nicer when things do work out :)).
