Comment:A resubmission to replace an earlier post, with more open cropping and improved noise reduction, tonal separation and sharpening. The background sky highlight was subdued with a luminosity mask. A change to square format seemed to yield a better composition, with inclusion of some of the out-of-focus vegetation helping to frame the bird.
The original photo was captured as I was attempting to catch a glimpse of a flock of Swift Parrots feeding in the tops of nearby large eucalypts, when this colourful example of one of Tasmania's twelve endemic bird species alit at close range in foreground ferns. You take your opportunities when they arise! The fern fronds were waving in the breeze, and I had to be quick to capture this peekaboo portrait. A notable feature is the two distinctively different shades of blue, on face and wing.
