I had captured this female 'Violate-Backed Starling' (Cinnyricinclus leucogaster) in Kruger National Park.

I've already posted male one. Female looks brown in colour and not such colourful as male one. Heavily stripes on females chest.

Hi Sri,
Today we're again neighbours in the gallery. Fantastic shot, the background blur's as excellent as on Marius' photo which I just commented. Colors and lights are spectacular, too. Overall sharpness is good, probably the reason, why not all parts of the plumage are tack sharp may be the wind??! However, pleasant semi-diagonal composition with awesome technicality, a very valuable image. Congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

what a striking picture ! TFS Ori

Hi Srikumar,in effect this female isn't colorful like the male,but that happens many times in the birds world,one of the most famous example is made by the common ducks. The pic is absolutely perfect another time,great timing to take it with the open beak. Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Ciao Srikumar, great capture of lovely singing bird in nice pose on beautiful blurry BG, wonderful natural colors, splendid sharpness and fine details, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Srikumar,
Impressive shot of this beautiful female starling. Love the speckled breast and earthtone colors in it's plumage. Text sharp focus showing exceptional detail and perfectly exposed. The blurred background is a real bonus. A treat for the eyes !!

What's to say but Beautiful lighting and detail...

Hello Srikumar,
It's difficult to find a better picture! Beautiful...
