White - Throated Swallow

I have recently captured this White-throated Swallow at Marieval Bird Sanctuary, early in the morning. Although it's not a new species in my gallery, but always I look for better or (better to say) different situation. Here I played with exposure and I like the result I got. Beautiful bird but restless, so to get good details in low light I did different experiments. I prefer Golden Hour, and here I was lucky to get The Moon in the background.

Hello Srikumar,
Nice to meet again after a very long absence of me....
Excellent details, colors as usual.

Hi Srikumar
This is a beautifully captured swallow and helped by him having a good look at you over his shoulder.

Hi Srikumar,nothing new about the species,but you have raison,the pic,the moment and the light are absolutely wonderful! A top class capture of this swallow,impossible to make better!!! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Hi Sri,
Beautiful and due to the blue backlight, mysterious photo. You're very right with the definition "different". Due to the light and the position of the moon it's a unique image, not only with excellent composition and sharpness, but also with very interesting, almost surrealistic color tones. Exceptional work, hats off for you!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

It is a great picture Srikumar! And a pretty bird!
You played very well controlling the light and that is not easy because of the color of the bird's feathers (dark blue, black and white). Very good composition and focus on the whole bird. The moon on the back is great.
Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
