This is an excellent capture with nice colors and good sharpness.
This is an excellent action shot, Subrato.
Yaar, kucch kahaani sunao ki what was the scenario when you took this prize shot. Greater Coucal deserves a good note on it. Apparently, it has captured some reptile which looks like a snake to me. After all, this rather large bird must be a good hunter and all that. I have this bird on my school campus too, but it remains hidden in a garden tree with dense leaf foliage. I can hear the typical bird sounds emanating from there, but I have not been able to see the bird or capture it thus far. What I presume is that it has a nest inside with young chicks in it.
Anyway, you are a good nature photographer but your enthusiasm level here on TN seems to be somewhat low, in my opinion.
Great moment You caught my Friend.Great POV and composition,wonderful natural colours.The 1/100 speed shutter seems not enought to freeze the best sharpness.In this case the ISO settings will be better 1000 don't You think?Thank You.
Have a good weekend!
