Great capture and wonderful portrait! This species looks really impressive. So colourful and so sharp that I can feel like watching alive specimen, not a picture :)
TFS and I'm waiting for your next photo!

This is great Chris!
A superb portrait of the male taken with fine sharpness, great eye contact, BG and lighting.
I failed to get a good shot of it with my 2S IS, the iridescent parts being too much for it.
This is a great reminder of those attempts and I am taking it into my favourites to show me how it should have been taken!

Smashing portrait of this lovely bird native to your country, Chris.
Despite the backlight, you have captured a very sharp image with distinct details and rich colours.
The plain neutral BG does great justice to the subject here.
Well done and TFS.

Wow, what a terrific close-up of the male Riflebird!!! Beautiful sharpness and colours and I like its sharp profile agains the light background. I did manage to capture it displaying in Queensland but the result was not too good. There was a French film team there too at the time and they seemed to miss it!! The place you went to sounds brilliant!!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

A portrait that demands more than two points....This is one of the best portrait shots i have come across in TN with a side profile.The sky blue metallic sheen is rich and shines through.Superb eye contact and texture details.
Thanks for adding the ws showing the bird again.Should find the nearest opportunity to see their courtship dance.
Very well done.
TFS & Cheers
