White-Throated Swallow

Recently I have captured this beautiful coloured White-throated Swallow. It's not a new species in my gallery, till I plunge in to the Kruger National Park in December Holiday.
I always try to keep background clean and less distracting (although depends on situation),mainly in my bird or macro Photography. Here I tried to frame the moment of before it flies away.

Hi Srikumar,absolutely perfect,a risk to try a capture before it flies away because the wings mouvements,but not for you as i can see. The quality is fantastic,bright colors of the head too. Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Very nice Srikumar.

It is a perfect picture in a great moment!
Light, shadows, color and composition are great!
Congratulation and thank you for sharing it with us.

Hi Srikumar,
Stunning photo. Not only because you managed to keep the background clear and simple, but more importantly because your timing was beautiful, you captured the moment before starting off, incredible! Wonderful pose in an eye-catching composition, plus great sharpness and colors. Huge congratulations, this is an extraordinary shot!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Srikumar,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the White-Throated Swallow. The light is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
