What a stunning bird and a great photo. I'm amazed that you have such fabulous birds there. Aussie birds don't tend to be so bright in colour, I suppose to blend in with our bush. The only bright ones aren't native! Love your blog, you have inspired me to press forward with my stamp carving. Just blogged about it.
