[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Friends, here is yet another picture of Grey Hypocolius (female) I was lucky enough to shoot here in Riyadh this January.
At the risk of sounding somewhat obsessed with this bird, I still have to say this that this bird gave me an intense experience in this arid desert land and so long as I have some good pictures of this bird in my archives, I would like to post them here from time to time. This one, in my personal assessment, is quite good.

So here it is.

For details information about this bird, kindly refer to my previous post HERE.

Thanks and take care.

Да това е с прекрасна цветова комбинация и контраст. Разбира се ако клюн беше да се вижда още по-добре, но такива са трудности при снимане на птици. Красиво и нежно птиче.

Yaaa very nice colour combination and contrast. Of corse if the beak wasn't under branch it'll be better, but who takes pictures of birds knows that often it's impossible. Beautiful and loving bird.

Hello Ram, another great capture, congrats, too bad that the spine is covering the beak, but the subject is what that matters..

Hi Ram.
I like your very nice picture so much. Your character is amazing in its beautifulness. I also like pictorial scenery, delicate and pleasant colour palette and excellent exposure parameters. DOF is selected perfectly. Main subject is sharp, BG is blurred pleasantly. Great skillfully done shot. My compliments and best regards.

Hello ram,
This bird is so elegant and fine.I loved all the pictures you have taken of it. The colours also are so subtle.
Best regards

Hello Ram,
I know that this is your preferred lady and I can understand why, she is a beauty. Like I said before, she really has the same feather's texture than the Cedar Waxwing that we have here. I'm glad for you that you still have good pictures of this lovely lady again. Well done and TFS,

Hola Ram
Toda una preciosidad de ave la que nos enseñas, es una pena que no se vea el pico entero. pero aún asi es preciosa.
Un saludo
