Hello Biswarup,
Really brilliant capture of this wonderful bird in a nice pose. The sharp details and strong colours make it stand out beautifully against the bright background. Excellent composition.
TFS and regards, Ulla

hi biswarup,

A lovely capture of this amazing bird , the BG and sharpness is worth speaking of , the position of the bird looks great in this frame. Bit noise guess coz of cropping the rest is great.



Cute Bird, Nice Post. Good composed.

Hello Biswarup

Pefect sharpness and lighting,

Your shortest note notwithstanding, this is a a beautiful capture of this colourful bird, Biswarup.
You deserve all the praise for this wonderful image.

Hi Biswarup,
Sunbird, no. Africa, no. This is a Babbler (Timaliidae), and this particular Babbler hails from southern Asia. This is an adult Red-billed Leiothrix (Leiothrix lutea). Profanely often called a Pekin Robin.

Good news about the job offer in India. This bird is one that you won't leave behind, but that you will find once home in India!

Hello Biswarup
Excellent shot of that little bird.
Great sharoness and colors,Welldone.


Hi Biswarup,
Beautifully colored bird, and I like the BG colors as well. Very good exposure, detail, DOF, POV, and pose here.
I would select the bird and add some blur BG to make it even better :)
Well done & TFS.

Una muy bella ave Biswarup retratada con agudeza y colorido maravilloso, realzados por el gran contraste logrado con el trasfondo de la escena.
Me gusta la composición con la rama estéticamente ubicada dentro de la misma y el encuadre apropiado.
Existe un ligero ruido de fondo... se percibe por el uso de un ISO elevado o como consecuencia del post procesado?.
Me gusta mucho... gracias por publicarla.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Very beautiful bird Biswarup depicted with sharpness and wonderful coloring, enhanced by the great contrast achieved with the background of the scene.
I like the composition with the branch aesthetically located inside the same one and the appropriate framing.
A slight bottom noise exists... is it perceived by the use of a high ISO or as consequence of the post processed?.
I like it a lot... thank you for posting.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo
