CommentWhen I first focused on this bird to take the photo, there was a bit of blue colouration on his throat - the rest of his feathers were jet black. Then within a split second he turned to one side and displayed a kaleidoscope of glossy colours. He is without doubt the most difficult bird I have tried to photograph in terms of good exposure settings.
