Splendid color. What a pretty little bird.

Namaste Devendra,
what a beautiful bird and the colours are so beautiful, very warm and with good contrast.
Again it's a little noisy and again I tried to see what's possible to do in a workshop with your nice shot. I hope you have a look and perhapy you enjoy it. Have a nice day, best wishes and greetings from Germany to you and your beautiful and interesting country, by
