A fantastic shot Rookery, super detailed capture of this colourful fellow
 
Wow, what an awesome bird!!! It looks like this chap was excited about something, excellent capture and picture Rookery!!!!
 
Looks good to me Rooky, superb capture. Had great views of the Pelicans today but no camera!!!
 
Congrats on a great capture! I was hoping to come across one of these, too, but well ... maybe next time!
Cheers!
 
Good one Rookery, as you say they are not the easies birds to approach and their habit of hiding from the camera doesn't help.
