2010-11-09  A Superb Starling at the Chester Zoo, England.  The back and wings are bright blue.

The number of comments on my bird series has been amazing.  A new Smugmugger has contacted me with some questions, and I've answered and also pointed her towards the photo improvement blog by another SMer.  That's what community is about.  Thanks to all of you.

And thanks to Rob for identifying the bird!  Here is another shot showing the plumage.  I prefer this one because of the straight-on view and expression.
