[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Crow Pheasant or Greater Coucal(Centropus sinensis) is a large non-parasitic member of the cuckoo order of birds, the Cuculiformes. A widespread resident in Asia, from India, east to south China and Indonesia, it is divided into several subspecies, some being treated as full species. They are large, crow-like with a long tail and coppery brown wings and found in wide range of habitats from jungle to cultivation and urban gardens. They are weak fliers, and are often seen clambering about in vegetation or walking on the ground as they forage for insects, eggs and nestlings of other birds. They have a familiar deep resonant call which is associated with omens in many parts of its range.

Ciao Joy, great capture of lovely Crow Pheasant, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Joydeb Da,
Beautiful captured.Nice colour all over its body.Once I captured this specie,but my picture was not like that.Your picture of this bird far better than mine.Nice BG with well sharped subject.
Thanks for sharing,
Kind regards,

Hi Joy,
Great photo with fantastic pose of the pheasant. Beautiful eye contact, lights, depth and most of all composition. Everything's fine, probably except for the focus, which seems a little soft. Probably you lose sharpness through the re-sizing procedure. To avoid this, I advice you to selectively sharpen the territory you want to be sharp after re-sizing. I see you have Photoshop CS5 so it may not be a problem.
Best regards, László

Hello Joy
such a lively capture in all best features. Exciting details in good light..though this bird like to hide in canopy.
layers of feathers are so interesting as well as the red eye.
nice work
