CommentI selected this image for the competition, as I liked the light filtering through the trees and landing softly on the back and side of this bird. Even though the bird is facing away from the viewer I don’t find this a distracting element, as the bird’s eye is clearly visible. This aspect also reveals the beautiful pinkish purple nuchal crest and the rich buff coloured spots on the mantle, wings and rump.
