The Gouldian Finch (Erythrura gouldiae), also known as the Lady Gouldian Finch, Gould's Finch or the Rainbow Finch, is a colourful passerine bird endemic to Australia. There is strong evidence of a continuing decline, even at the best-known site near Katherine in the Northern Territory. Large numbers are bred in captivity, particularly in Australia.

Elegant posture of the tiny bird, like it was modeling for you on-demand, Eleu.
Its colors look stunning, and amazing what natrure had done to her...

Amazing bold colors for this live bird, should be an advertissement for colored inks!

This bird is just incredible, looking almost unreal. How on earth could such colors develop? This is perfectly captured on a semi-profile and the light is very good.

Hello Eleu, How colourful is this bird. Fantastic picture, so sharp, clear, with marvelous colours. Was it made in kind of zoo? I was in Katherine in Australia but haven't seen them there at large. So cute. Perfect capture. Thanks for sharing.

Quelle belle photo animalière. Cet oiseau est très très coloré. Il est d'une très belle netteté et j'aime beaucoup le flou de l'arrière plan.

I think I have only seen this bird in North Queensland. It used to be common across northern Australia. This link might interest you. I have no idea why the population has declined. Trapping, ddt, climate change? http://www.environment.gov.au/cgi-bin/sprat/public/publicspecies.pl?taxon_id=413
Anyway a colourful shot of this Australian bird with good sharpness and shallow dof. Tfs!

This beautiful little fella is easy prey to predators due to being so colourful and what a brilliant bird - I wonder how long did it take for the paint to dry!!! lol. Wish we have some like that floating around, just a blaze of colours. Brilliant capture you must be so pleased with this as much as we do. Congrats

This very colorful bird stands well against the blurred background with a very good sharpness of it's details.

Superb snapshot. Thanks to the soft light the bird's colourful plumage is rendered incredibly well, with great feather detail, and it's also lovely and sharp. I particularly like the differential focus, with the bird standing out against well blurred background. Excellent bird photo!!
Very well done.
