|Coucal Toulou or Centropus Toulou is a bird which can be seen in Madagascar, the Comoros islands and Aldabra island. He can reach the length of 2 feet from head to tail. During the wedding season, he is shiny black except the wings which stay red/brown. Otherwise, as it the case here, head and neck turn to grey. Picture was taken in Andasibe Natural reserve, 100 km east of Madagascar's capital. Fearful and difficult to approach, this is why I had to use a 200 to take the picture.|

Love the light you have captured on this cute tiny bird against a pleasing BG, Fidy!
The colors are natural and DOF is well maintained.
Colors are natural and POV is excellent too.
Just a minor issue: A closer crop might have enhanced the overall appeal of teh picture IMHO.

très belle iamge et captage de ce bouquet de fleurs, superbe compo et iamge avec le croisement des différentes branches et cet oiseau avec le rouge sur son pelage, quelle cpatage.
Bravo et amitié
Awesome capture of this bird but it look like the bird had a bad hair day. Good use of the dof with nice and good lighting. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
