    Tough shot with the light and shade I suspect and you have done very well in those conditions. Lovely detail.

    Frightening beaks, but the feathers are beautiful. In my tt.

    A gorgeous bird which I have photographed many times in South America. This one needs to be in full sun and with a less focused background to stand out. As it is, it looks a little less than vibrant to me. I think the eyes are the key and here the eye is a dead black (empty).

    Nice photo & composition. You can almost hear him squawk. I wish the eye was a little lighter but that's a minor point.
