Probably a once in a lifetime shot of this species, luck factor 11 out of 10, but isn't that what bird photography is all about, the challenge? Doesn't get too much better than this one!
A fantastic shot that represents both colours and habitat accurately, well done.
Super sharpness with a great pose and composition
