Hand holding the 500 f4 L IS is not an easy task, but sometimes I get lucky to get a good shot. The pose, background and detail assured this handsome bird a place in this gallery.

Ate Lyds,

I understand it's the same species, but most probably a different race...;-)

Ka Romy,
Look at the circle around the eyes... like a button.
Is this the same specie as the one in my garden?

Sumasaludo ulit.

There you go. Here is one of these with a blue forehead. Still thinking of the A. flagrans. I still have to see a pic of one of these from Phils that has this feature.
