Hello Albert,
I know this BB as it is quite common in South Africa...
It is a funny image, I like its pose...
Well done

Bsr Albert,

encore une photo très réussi. On imagine bien ce que l'oiseau regarde: la photo le transmet parfaitement. L'éclairage est aussi très bon, le fond du plus bel effet. Il y aurait juste le perchoir de l'oiseau a critiquer car pas très beau ni nature...

Hi Albert,
Great shot and a perfect moment captured. Nice action, almost peeping in. The plumage is sharp with nice colours. Superb lighting and exposure with the BG highlighting the subjects perfectly. Great POV and composition. Kudos.

Hello Albert,

Our bulbul is different than your especially the head. This is an excellent shot against the clear background. I like the perch and plumage details and the curiosity created by the composition.


He is a rather bold bird isn't he. Very nice composition. Youv'e included just enough of the car door to show what was happenng. Nice BG.

Bonjour Albert, quelle belle capture! J'aime bien le regard plein de convoitise de l'oiseau. Bien vu et bien fait, bravo et merci!


bonjour Albert

une photo très amusante, j'aimes sa pose et son contact visuel,
excellent focus avec superbes netteté et détails du plumage, TFS


Albert, it is a pleasure to go into your portfolio and admire your pictures.
Though I did see and shoot Yellow-vented Bulbul in Riyadh, this one is a different species of Bulbuls altogether. Its black eye ringed with yellow is its special feature.
The image is perfect in every respect.
You were lucky to have it inside your car.
Thanks and regards.

Hi MF Albert, firstly welcome back your home!
You captured this beautiful yellow-vented bulbul in a lovely posture with neat details and fine composition.
TFS and have a nice week!
