I've been using the small pop-up flash on the camera lately and I've found it really helps to bring out the colour in the birds.
Thanks for the tip on flash. Beautiful top-down colors :)

@Chetan: Depends on your camera but I find that even 8-10 metres away it can still throw some light on to the bird. Quite often it is a case of a lack of light that stops the bird's true colours from being revealed.
What a beautiful picture, what colors, pretty sharp! And so in the "wild".

@Willie: Thanks Willie. I took perhaps 15 photos of these guys in my backyard feeding on a large 'Cheese' tree and got about 4 good shots. This would be my favourite one though. I'm not sure what they were after whether it was ants or the seeds on this tree.
Wouhaaaaaaaaa!! magnifique photo!! bravo à toi! que de belles couleurs!!!
