Red-eared Firetail

Red-eared Firetail (Image ID 40514)
CommentI had several images of this juvenile to choose from, but was drawn to this one because of the contrast of the brown bird against the bright background, and the fact that the subject has eye contact with the viewer. I also like the somewhat understated colours of the juvenile (versus the adults of this species) which I think compliments the colour palette in this image. You can see where they get the name firetail from!
