Hello Zahoor,
What a pretty looking bird!I have seen them moving in pairs but hant been lucky enough to get a good shot.And here is a wondeful one you have done.

The bird is shown with excellent detail.It fills up the frame with a grand view.I love the well saturated colours and the lighting.The tuft of hair on the head is a real little crown that distinguishes the bird from others.Lovely eye contact. The way you hae cpatured it in the greens around which it thrives looks exactly the way i have seen them ...pecking on food from among the grass.The sharpness and clarity is superb.A presentaton i quite enjoyed looking at.

Thanks for shairng
