Hello Samiran,
Wonderful photo in splendid clarity, great sharpness and very beautiful colours. Fantastic frontal POV and pose in a perfect composition.

hallo Samiran

Namaskar Samiranda

What a superb angle to present the Koel. A sort of half frontal half profile POV, best of both worlds to show all the good features of even the male Koel. Classic mix of colours. Wonderful picture.

Hello Samiran,
I just love action shots of any animal and this is truly fantastic. The sharp detail colors are the result of correct settings and perfect POV. Beautiful eye contact. Excellent work my friend.
Best regards,

Hello Samiran,
A very expressive shot which you have perfectly timed!. On the thumbnail it is not clear what you show exactly, but it is worth to click on it:-).
Perfect sharpness,fine colour-contrast, interesting subject.
Thanks a lot!

it can sometimes be difficult to expose the black plumage correctly but you have given a perfect lesson in how to do so.
A stunning capture of the bird eating a berry in an excellent composition.
Very,very nice.
