February 21

I don't know what kind of bird this is, but when I walked up to it, it turned around and showed me its beautiful plumage.
Either a very good sign or a bad one. I don't know.

other sizes: small medium original

Spectacular shot. Love the pattern in the wings. Have never seen this before either.....

Wow, what wonderful colours. From the thumbnail I was thinking moth, not this wonder. Great shot, and timing with his(?) showing off (for mating?)

Colorful plumage on this guy. I think he's trying to impress the girls!
