I was very lucky to get this one just in front of our bunganlow one morning.

Hello Pierre,
Nice photo of this manakin in beautiful colors and a fine composition. Details are difficult in these bright colored feathers.

Hi Pierre,
Gorgeous colored bird with nice composition and in amazing colors.
Regards Jiri.

Hello Pierre,
Beautiful colored bird. Difficult color to get proper details, but can see its eye. Well BG and bokeh. It would have been better if the branch didn't cross just behind its head.
Thanks for showing such beautiful rare species here in TN,

Hello Pierre

As Srikumar wrotes « Difficult color to get proper details » but you did an excellent shot
and we can see the eye, fine POV and framing, wonderful background bokeh, TFS


Beautiful bird, Pierre.
I like your perspective for a mid range shot.

Hello Pierre
This long-tailed manakin is a stunning bird. You captured him at a nice angle which shows off his beautiful plumage.
