    Wow, sure can see where he gets his name from. Lovely detailed bird Joshua. Something happening along leg and top of perch.

    Love the pose and simple perch Joshua. I'm notoriously bad at colour casts but to my eye, there seems to be quite a strong red cast across the image. I can also see some unnatural looking areas around the legs and perch but these are minor things. Great to find one after your long search and great get such a lovely shot too. They are stunningly beautiful birds.

    Great capture, but I agree there's something odd around the legs and perch.

    Legs and perch identified and I agree with Graham that it does look slightly too red. A wonderful pose and perch captured Joshua. Nicely done and congratulations, Wilson

    Perch/leg issue has been mentioned, but rest is lovely. Gorgeous coloring and a clean backdrop to show it off.
    Cheers, John Daniels.
