I like the level of detail seen in these black birds. So far, my few attempts have gotten me shiny reflections, or black holes with beaks. For some reason, I really like seeing the second bird’s eye.
Quite neat! I hope the bird’s families are buying portraits from you.Today I went to the closest beach park - with the plan to sit somewhere under shade and read something. After ~15-20 min. reading I checked the surroundings and for my big surprise there was a lot of life around: Red-crested Cardinal making all possible efforts to dislocate a peace of bark and even making some upside-down acrobatics (later I figure out they are looking for some kind of larvae!). And the very common around seed-eater - the Common Waxbill, so close I actually had to focus on distant birds because the closest were less than 3 meters from me (huh, some of them were like 1.5 meters from me).

Great colors and detail. If that gaze was directly upon me, I’d probably by looking for cover.
