A beautiful capture of this kingfisher,a species that i like a lot,great detail on body and face and all the sense of mouvement on the topof wings,great exposure of the difficult light too.Have a nice day and thanks,LUCIANO

Hello Abhirup,
Great capture of this pretty Pied Kingfisher just as it appears to be ready to take off. I love the way we can see it's beautiful markings with fully extended wings up in in the ready position. Focus is sharp and you managed to freeze the motion perfectly.
Exposure is perhaps a little dark as I can't make out it's eye. Hope you don't mind, but I wanted to try and lighten it a tad in a WS.

good shot - not too sharp but in these light conditions well done.
Good moment just when bird is starting...

Hi Abhirup, Very nice picture of this bird attempting to fly away from the rock. Great details even though with a low light situation. Thank for sharing

nice takeoff, greetings Ori
