I've just commented on Ram's fine capture of a Red-vented Bulbul and now it's great to see this Black-eyed Bulbul for comparison! (Perhaps this ought to be named Yellow-vented! :-)) This is an excellent capture showing a fine profile of this beautiful bird against a smooth background.
TFS and cheers, Ulla
Här har vi inte fått mycket regn men stora moln flyger över oss - efter midsommar kanske det blir fint! ;-)

An excellent capture of Pycnonotus barbatus that you ought to have posted earlier!
+: Sharpness, DOF, pose, POV, BG, composition (great with the aloe), colours and lighting.
-: none, its a fine portrait!
Thanks and have a good weekend,
Tjonge wat heb je nog een schitterende foto's in je archief. Deze foto komt zo natuurlijk over. Absoluut de mooiste foto van deze soort die ik ooit gezien heb. Alleen de achtergrond is wat vreemd van kleur, maar wel erg mooi. De scherpte, pose, compositie en kleur zijn uitstekend.

Why did you wait so long to post this beautiful Black-eyed Bulbul? The face is magnificent and the black eye shines in the black feathers. The colors and details of the face, and feathers are marvelous - the yellow vent is beautiful. Wonderful pose on the thorny leaf, perfect background and superb composition.

So you too have posted the picture of a Bulbul.
Thanks a lot for your kind words on my 900th picture the subject of which happens to be a different kind of a Bulbul.
I have seen and captured this Yellow-vented Bulbul in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia too. Apparently, this species is found in the Middle East also.
This is a very fine capture with superb clarity and colours.
Thanks and regards.

Wonderful shot of this great looking Black-eyed Bulbul with immaculate sharpness and colours on its plumage. A cool pose captured on that cactus makes this image look very pleasing. Excellent POV, DOF and composition. Kudos.

What a beautiful bird with the bright catch light in the eye.
Love the subtle/subdued lighting and color scheme.
Details on the bird amazingly sharp.
Am fascinated by the perch.
What kind of tree is that with all the thorns?
TFS. : )

This is a very beautiful bird with fine features that fit it well. I have seen many of this in our garden lately but could not as yet get a perfect shot like yours. This is really a striking bird with delicate and lovely plumage, especially on the crest. You have captured it with great focus and sharpness. The neutral backdrop highlights this bird's features to its best. The cactus on which it was captured compliments the photo a lot. Thanks for sharing.

Die ken ik. Ik dacht aan Skukuza maar is wel een gast in elk Krugerkamp, dacht ik.
Heel mooi gedaan. Pose, achtergrond, perch... lijkt allemaal makkelijk maar is het niet.
Bedankt en groet.
