[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Thank you all for the critiques for my previous posts.

This is a common Indian Myna, from what I have observed they form their nests on hollow pipes. I could spot this bird very close to my terrace. They are very shy but if you stay immobile they trust you after a while. It was little difficult getting a hide there, so I covered myself with a bed spread :-).

You're welcome Shabeer. Has been my pleasure.
Really beautiful bird image you are showing us here today.
Love to see that even in the concrte jungle these birds have found there place.
Composition, sharpness, lighting and depth of field are excellent.
Background is very pleasing soft and the colors and details with the parent feeding the youngster.
Perfect work.
Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards,

Muito bonita a foto. Além da beleza natural do pássaro, temos aqui a beleza do momento que você conseguiu capturar. Parabéns.

Hi Shabeer,

This is such a wonderful capture and done so well! Such a sweet sight seeing the adult feeding the baby. Excellent colors and fine details. And such a different setting than we usually see. TFS.


An excellent shot of mother and chick, Shabeer!Perfect timing and exposure.

very nice shot, comp...

Hi Shabeer,
You efforts were worth... You got a really good image, with mother feeding her chick. Wondeful details on plumage, good exposure, good DOF, so really good work! Marta

bonjour shabeer
le parent en train de donner a manger est deja en soit une superbe chose mais en plus la photo est irreprochable.
