Great capture of this beauty bathing Dan! The shadowed background works magically in this photo.

Excellent capture of the colors so pleasantly bright. Very nice surface of the water and the drops are a must.

Wonderful that the light is hitting the bird. Cool to learn that they've been introduced to Hawaii...one more reason to go there.

The evenness of the water drops through the frame gives a nice composition. Lots of great detail when you click.

Love the water drops, bright eye and great light. First time I've seen this species here. Thanks for the education. :)
