How nice to see a new photo. Beautiful shot of this Common Hawk-Cuckoo in good sharpness and natural colours. Pleasing eye contact. Maybe you can crop a piece of the right side to get the bird more out of the centre. Beautiful blue sky in the BG.

happy to see new photo from you, excellent and
very beautiful photo of the Common Hawk-Cuckoo,
with fine POV and framing, excellent focus
sharpness and details, and a lovely eye-contact,
Great capture with good details of Brainfever bird. What makes it's name as brain fever??? TFS
PS: Recently visited Dhikala & it was great disappointment since entire chaur (>80%) was submerged with barrage water.

Pictured species is very attractive and I like how well you have reproduced its wonderful feathers, chest, tail, head and charming impressive eye. Sharpness of the image is simply great, lights and colours of the shot are also fine. Well done and kind wishes.

Very good technically. Then we have those ever prevalent cables I see so much in India....Ram is good at posting them as perches..due to lack of trees i suspect...wish I had some feathers from this bird but not allowed int eh US...I think! If it is indigenous to the US then I cannot have them. If it is ten they are not allowed under federal law...crazy!Bob

Great to see you around again. Hope you are not going to do a dissapearing act soon. Beautiful bird that looks as if it is posing especially for you. Technically well done, the details are sharp and the colors well contrasted. The details in the feathers are seen beautifully against the clear blue sky, especially the lovely tailpiece. I like it very much. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Ravie de voir une photo de ta part! Cela faisait un moment!!
Un oiseau rarement montré, chez nous il est difficile de voir les coucous en général. Une image simple et bien réalisée. Dommage qu'il ne soit pas perché sur une branche. Mais l'ensemble est plaisant par ses couleurs et sa présentation dépouillée.

What a beautiful shot - wish it was mine! I have never seen a Common Hawk-Cuckoo before - love that word "Common" as part of this handsome bird's name. The pose and the capture are picture perfect with wonderful details and colors of the face, eye and feathers. The familiar looking blue sky makes a perfect background An impressive composition.

Hello Goldy, my brother
I missed this shot. it is very nice. focus, eyes contact and coloration great. nicely captured against blue sky. nicely composed. It is very similar to Common Cuckoo here. there is a bit difference in details.
thanks for sharing. best wishes

Interesante trabajo con la luz y los colores con unos resultados muy conseguidos.
Difícil ángulo des disparo pero muy bien captada el ave. Un excelente trabajo.
Saludos Goldy: Josep Ignasi.

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the Common Hawk-Cuckoo. The late morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Goldy, dear,
Loved this one.
Excellent clarity. Loved that true Indian blue sky!!!
The colours are all so very natural.
Presented with so much taste.
Warm regards from a very very COLD, THUNDA, Calgary.
