[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a pair of Red-Vented Bulbuls (Pycnonotus cafer)sitting on the branch of a budding mulberry tree in the late afternoon of a sunny February day.In this photograph the sunlight is passing from left to right and though the camera does not boast a good zoom, I like this snapshot and the privacy this pair enjoyed when I shot them undercover. These birds were gathering to feed on the fruit of Chinese fan palm along with rose-ringed parakeets, the female of a koel and common mynahs.It was a sight to see, hope friends will like this little effort.

hello syed

i understand the difficulty of composition at this stage.seems to be its ur best try.tfs


Though one of the Bulbuls is obstructed by a twig, the overall impression of companionship comes out strongly in this picture, Abid bhai. The Mulberry tree is already showing signs of spring.
Seen you after a long time. Hope all is well.
Thanks and regards.
