I don't know what kind of bird, but they let them run around in the building. They "clean up" all the dead butterflies and so on that would otherwise collect over time.

The colours in the plumage are very subtle, but fascinating.

Ah, too bad you had to use flash :). Otherwise a cute creature :)

I was taking test shots for a wedding, so I was using my Gary Fong Lightsphere

I could have dialed back on the flash, but it turned out reasonable well regardless.

Ah, okay :). Looks cool that lightsphere :)
