"Burchell's Coucal"

Being very close to long grass, the background is very busy. Too busy? I could have changed the background but to me the background conveys information about the bird. Please agree to differ.

Ps. I had an major overall of my PC and a new Photoshop (Cs6). What color-space should I use when posting pictures. I am not 100% happy what I see.

Iso-400 f6.3 1/60 handheld 500(150-500) Sigma

Great image - I imagine it took some stealth to capture this one.

Thank you. "stealth to capture", not really, near my home I kept the natural vegetation. I often get very interesting birds and mammals, sitting on my porch, this time I had my camera next to my cup of coffee.

Looks good here Aart. For posting here or on the web, sRGB is recommended.

Thank you Rick, I have "sRGB IEC 61966-2.1". I presume this is what you referred to.
