This is so beautiful! I love the colors of the feathers. I also love how you are looking into the distance like you are striving to fly. Keep up the good work.

Thank you very much, Malcolm. First I wanted my "hair" like the "paradisebird" LONG, but then I decided to make it shorter but therefor more colorful
