Painted bunting

Often described as the most beautyful bird in North America. Not easy to catch on a photo as it stands far in the trees in shaded areas.

You did well to capture this with ?your Viv 105?
The image could do with a further crop, though, and some PP work to make the colours of the bird shine.

Very nice catch Robert, wish it was mine Like Ash said already, a little more PP might still improve it.
