Congratulations @Daren. I will enjoy seeing this colorful and creative photo for the 31 days of March @Bootsy the Kingfisher, and also @Vinaya the photo of the Rooster against that rich background) were also special standouts for me.
Thanks all for nice comments & voting for the Picture I took I did not expect to win With all toughs other Much, much more difficult Birds that where court on camera!..... I just posted it there as I have not taken a good Bird Shot in ages lol & to put a little humour in the mix I promise I'll try & catch a feathered Bird on Camera soon hehe
Beautiful shot! I love the profusion of purples and hot pinks. Preacher Blackbird has obviously just finished a great burst of sermonizing to the bugs in the lily bed... he is giving them one of his looks. Congratulations!
