[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello fellow TN friends,
I packed my bag to go to a small farm near my place, I had to detour to help my aunt get something, while waiting for her in the car, I saw this small little bird with a long feathered tail, ran out to the back of the car and got the camera, he was flying away but managed to get 3 clicks, this is one of them,
Thanks for Commenting.

Hello Nelson,
Not exactly the POV you would have preferred I'm sure, but good enough for an unexpected encounter. From what we can see the species is quite attractive with its black and white plumage and very long tail feathers. The bright orange bill contrast nicely and you made good eye contact with a bit of catchlight visible.
I hope you will visit your aunt in the near future and are fortunate enough to to get a clear shot of this attractive bird. Nice job considering you were in a hurry!

Hi Nelson,
Beautiful bird. Well captured its facial portion. Quite well framed. In my opinion, it would be more attractive if you placed the bird bit right side and bit place in the left side of the frame. In such way you could placed this bird nicely, following "RULE OF THIRD".
Personally, I don't like MAN MADE ARTICLES in the Nature Photography. I'm not just saying but I follow it in my picture too.
Thanks for showing,
Best wishes,

Ciao Nelson, great capture of lovely bird with fantastic long tail, good clarity and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Nelson,
Nice photo of this male Pin-tailed Whydah, vidua macroura. Not easy to get the whole bird, including the tail, in good sharpness. Colors are beautiful.

Hi Nelson,
Unlike Srikumar, I don't find all the man-made articles destructing on a nature photo if they aren't dominant. Very interesting composition with the bird placed closed to the left edge and the out of focus tail bends through the entire image. Extraordinary composition, especially with this background with the diagonal lines. Gorgeous image, congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
