Bonsoir Bunyapon,

Amazing bird illustrated in shap details. You managed beautifully the ambiant harsh light. Here you had the chance to get a nice catch light in its eye (without fill-in flash). As you may see, that sparkel of light brings a lot of life to the image. Nice work and TFS.

Hello Bungbing,
Looks like you managed to get right on top of this little beauty to obtain such a fine photo. The detail is exceptional and the crested head and orange eye ring captures your attention right off the bat.
The features of this particular bird reminds me alot of our flycatchers here in Ohio. Great work!!
