What a gorgeous bird.  He looks like he was painted by number.  Beautiful. 
I almost forgot to mention.....great work getting him in a position that we can all enjoy his various colors.

I don't know how you manage to find such spectacular birds! This one is over the top. And so well posed to show off it's amazing colors. I see even the feet have yellow tips. Is it a rare species? It really does look like a fantastic painting.

This species is least concern according to IUCN Red list of threatened species. I take this shot at altitude 7500ft. in Darjeeling Himalaya ( natural set up ). This bird is very shy and fast , found in hill forests and prefers pine forest with bushes.
