A New Bird For Trek Nature

************************************************************************
IN THIS PICTURE THE HEAD OF THE BIRD LOSES ITS AESTHETICS BECAUSE OF MERGING/ALIASING ISSUES.
************************************************************************
I have captured this beautiful and almost tail-less "Long-billed Crombec" (Sylvietta refescens) in Kruger National Park. One of the fast moving (restless) bird in the bush I ever captured. Even this bird doesn't sit in a place for 2 seconds. So to me it's a special one. I think it's still not matured enough!

Crombecs are very small birds with extremely short tail.

Hola Srikumar; hermosa foto de esta ave que se ve muy inquieta, me gusta el entorno natural y la composición; impresionante lo corto de su cola...saludos.

說的也是 第一次看這種鳥很奇特

Hi Srikumar,

The branches are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Long-Billed Crombec. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

Hello Srikumar,
An unusually short tail makes this bird quite unique looking. Nicely focused while showing very good detail. Beautiful rich colors and just the right amount of exposure. I love all the greenery surrounding your subject.
