[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a juvenile Asian-Glossy Starling,it become glossy blackish-green when turn adult.is easy to find or spot them around urban areas in Malaysia.they always stay on dried tree or clean unleaf tree but it quite hard to capture them because of they usually stay at the top of the tree.

i got this one with his family staying low when they come down to feeding.

That red eye is wonderful Ken!
Very sharp eye nice depth of field and your positioning is perfect! Good lighting which allows me to see the colors in the wings.


Hi Ken.

A nice clear shot which shows us the movement of the bird accurately. The light colors on the BG gives the photo a warmer feeling besides the evil look on the bird's eye.

Well Done & TFS.
