Fabulous close-up Mike !
Thank you Renee.
I really like this one. You just don’t see all those colours from a distance, lovely textures too.
Thanks Di. The colours and texture are a bit different on this bird because it has feathers under its eye instead of the large red wattle usually seen.
Very nice detail in this capture
