[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this 'Levaillant's Cisticola' or Tinkling Cisticola yesterday in Marivale Bird Sanctuary, Nigel. It's a small passerine bird and very fast on the branches. So difficult to focus and here timing plays a key role. Light was in my favour.

Hello Srikumar,
An attractive image of this beautifully marked bird. Wonderful eye contact and very good detail. I like the POV you chose which resulted in a fine clean BG.


Bom dia amigo excelente foto com composição muito boa meus parabéns.

Hi Srikumar,

Lovely image of the 'Cisticola' with excellent sharpness and nice POV. The image conveys a feeling as if the bird is just about to take-off.

Thanks for sharing.
