Great shot! Congrats.
Great to have the two sexes together - beautiful shot. Congratulations on the SOTD 10wildfig and thanks for sharing this.
Congratulations 10wildfig, your pair of Violet-backed starlings is our Spotting of the Day:"This exquisite image of a male and female Violet-backed Starling (Cinnyricinclus leucogaster) is our Spotting of the Day! The male has a bright metallic purple head and back and a white chest and stomach, while the female is mainly brown with a white speckled stomach, making this species strongly sexually dimorphic".Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/projectnoah/pho...Twitter:https://twitter.com/projectnoah/status/9...
That's picture postcard perfect.
Fantastic sexual dimorphism on this species! Great that you got the pair together.
