Gorgeous bird and perch. The petal on the edge a minor distraction but easy fix...Either way, drop dead gorgeous Himadri.
Make your life spectacular!

Wow, what a riot of color this is. Lovely composition and that background color sets off the red of the flower so well. I'm with David on removing the red petal at the right edge, but it is minor.

I'm struck by the amazing colors, especially how the bird's back resembles the flower in color and shape. A bit of camouflage? Striking shot!

Love all your colorful birds and flowering perches. This one qualifies. And that background is just wonderful.
