Excellent picture of this Purple Starling. I haven't able to find this species yet. Very good color and sharpness. Stunning BG too.

Peter, I guess this is the first appearance of this Starling here on TN.
At least for me, it is a novel experience. Tripod does make a difference sometimes; this is a perfect example of it.
The image is flawless and beautiful.

What a beautiful bird you have photographed for us, the markings are simply gorgeous. The contrasting colors and that large yellow eye immediately captures your attention. It has a very unique shape to it's head, especially the forehead area which is a bit irregular almost curvy looking. Wonderful clean BG and tac sharp focus. Congratulations on such an impressive photo!!

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the Purple Glossy Starling. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice dya.
