Hello Abhirup,
Excellent sharp detailed photo of this francolin in beautiful warm natural colors.

Ciao Abhoirup, great capture of lovely creature, fine details, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciso Silvio

Beautiful species and well captured this Gray Francolin. Although the head of the left side bird looks odd, but I think you don't like cropping picture. Recently I read a note which has written by India's Cannon Brand Ambassador that "Cropping photograph isn't a good idea", even he posted a photograph almost same you have posted. Even he told not to crop. Just do everything before "Clucking". Amazing! Didn't know that.
Thanks for showing your work,
যা গরম পড়েছে শুনলাম! ভালো থেকো।
Best wishes,

Hello Abhirup,
What a beautifully marked bird with gorgeous camouflaged colors. Focus is tac sharp displaying excellent detail and your exposure is perfect. Reminds me somewhat of the Bobwhite quail I used to see as a young boy. I like the low POV you chose showing it scratching the soil as it searches for food.

Beautiful close-up capture of this bird from Ranthambore sanctuary, Abhirup.
The bird merges with the BG and thus sets an example of perfect camouflage.
