It's really strange the colours of this bird it doesn't look natural, in my country there is no bird with somany different colours. TFS.

Spectacular shot of a spectacular bird. Amazing lens if this is an 80% crop as you say to Annick.

A beautiful shot of a beautiful bird. The colors are amazing. Wonderful details - he is so color coordinated with that yellow eye. Lovely pose and bg.
What a superb shot of this amazing lookig Bird, very nicely composed with a great pose and nice sharp detail, and as for the colours well they are just stunning. I think the bird should actually be called a Red Bearded, Yellow Tailed, Green Backed, Pink Headed, Blue eyed Bee Eater, the Malayasian Birdlife really is spmething special.

Wonderful colours, superb BG, sharpness and shot great.
840mm focal length and a shutter speed of 1/125...tripod?
How far were you from the subject? Or put it in another way...does your flash light reached the subject?
You underexposed minus 2/3...why? Subject is under the leaves and thus into the shadows, shouldn't you overexpose instead; but it has to be said your bird shows vivid colours and certainly not underexposure. Maybe 800 iso plays a role in the latter.
Sorry for techtalk....but there were so many unusual things to assess technically.
