[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Zebra Finch, Taeniopygia guttata is the most common and familiar estrildid finch of Central Australia and ranges over most of the continent, avoiding only the cool moist south and the tropical far north. It aslo can be found in Indonesia (native), Puerto Rico (introduced), Portugal (introduced) & USA (introduced). Zebra Finches inhabit open steppes with scattered bushes and trees, but have adapted to human disturbances, taking advantage of human-made watering holes and large patches of deforested land.

Very good camera control Biswarup to show us all the details of this bird with sharpness and coloring.

I like it a lot: composition, POV, sharpness, colors, lighting, background, framing.DOF, focus,

I like it: notes.

I don't like it: the lack of the values of the image.

A very slight bottom noise exists... did you use an high ISO in this capture?
Thank you and greetings... Ricardo

Hello Biswarup
such a lovely view of the bird. Very sharp presentation of the bird. Nice colors and nice eye contact.
Very lovely indeed. The contrast of the well muted background make the scenery so outstanding.
Well done.


Hello Biswarup,

Hi Biswarup,
Great shot, good light management, nice details and sharpness on the plumage + pleasant composition. When I was a child, I had Zebra finches, too - an extra reason why I love this spectacular photo. :-) Perfect image, bravo!
Kind regards, László
