A pair of Purple Crested Turacos would visit our neighbours garden early in the morning. Normally they scurried around in the branches and called from a fairly well concealed position. On this occasion one sat out in the open and started calling. Notwithstanding, I had to remove a few branches / twigs from behind the tail to clean it up in post-processing and because the set subject was contrasting colours I added some yellow for the otherwise dull background.
