Victoria's Riflebird

Victoria's Riflebird (Image ID 33999)
CommentWhilst being the most magical bird I have ever seen, this Victoria’s Riflebird also proved to be the most difficult bird I have tried to photograph in terms of good exposure settings. One moment he is jet black and the next a kaleidoscope of glossy colours. It took me several days of waiting and hoping before getting a few acceptable shots.
