Hello Nelson,
Nice photo of this Fork-tailed Drongo, dicrurus adsimilis. If you take a photo of a bird handheld you should use a quick exposure time, like 1/800 or more. Or better a monopod or tripod. Composition and colors are nice.

Hello Nelson,
Beautiful colored Drongo. But I don't understand why you used f/32 here and 1/15 !
You have very good camera and lens. Use ISO 400 to 800 and f/8....when you are not using any tripod. Due to shaking hand bird looks hazy.
Thanks for sharing,

Ciao Nelson, great capture of lovely bird on beautiful blue sky, fantastic metallic colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
