Crest/Crown, this bird belongs to royalty, with its magnificent display. The colors are amazing, with every feather in place unruffled. What a portrait, of a lovely bird. Dont really know what a 'mist net' means,but I'm sure they are not harmed by it. j.e.s.
wow, stunning photo, you can almost "feel" the bird in your photo!!!! beautiful creation of God!!! thanks
Nature! What a magnificent flourish of regal attire this flycatcher displays in its crest, while it engages in its perhaps not quite so regal lifestyle of catching flies.
This photo would have benefited from a higher aperture setting to give it a greater depth of field, to keep the bird's beak and the perimeter of the crest in sharper focus. The important details such as the eyes and most of the crest are perfectly in focus.
A splendid photo of a splendid creature!
Oh what a beautiful shot. I would loved to have seen the whole bird though for interest sake as I really love birds and have worked with birds and wildlife at a rehab centre for most of my life.
How are you getting this as your desktop? There used to be a 'Download Wallpaper' link on the 'Photo of the Day' page, but I haven't seen it for months.
@Charles Spencer Right click the Image and save as. Right click on your desktop go to Properties the rest you can do.
@Charles Spencer for some photos they don't provide wallpaper links because of copyright I believe
Thanks. One of the advantages to the old 'Download Wallpaper' link was that it returned a full 1600 x 1200 image.
