The magic colour of these birds eyes draw you in as they are stunning. Genarally the females of the bird species are dull colours but the plumage on this bird was magnificent. Photo was taken at Lamington National Park in Queensland. Shot details:Canon 5D MkII & Canon 70-200mm F2.8L USM @ 200mm handheld. Settings: Aperture F/5.6 ISO 1000 @ 1/400s

Grew up in TPNG in the sixties, educated in Queensland (don’t hold that against me). Have been married for 36 years and now live in country Victoria.

    Beautifully captured!! Amazing details, clarity, and DoF!!! Great shot! Her eyes are stunning!

  • They really are a beautiful bird and you are right the eyes are stunning. You should see the male as he has a double halo of blue and purple.
