[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this "African Collared Dove" in our yard. Sunlight was really harsh (you can see the shadow of the Dove). To get a descent POV you shouldn't think about your clothes, at least when bird is such small and foraging on the ground.
It's a small bird and mainly found in arid region.

Hi Srikumar,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the African Collared Dove. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
