Another fantastic photo. This is the best photo of this species I've ever seen. Amazing clarity in this photo, so splendid colours. Superb sharpness and a wonderful POV and composition.

A beautiful image of this Hornbill with its very prominent features well seen and displayed. The image is sharp and well focused with a great point of view. One just wonders if this poor bird does not constantly have a headache with that heavy doublestory bill that it has to carry around all the time. I want to thank you as a newcomer for starting of on the right foot by giving some useful and interesting information with your postings. That is much appreciated. It was a pleasure stopping by this lovely bird. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

A belated welcome to TN. I can see that we can learn a lot from you, because your photos are of an outstanding quality. I love the the warm glow in this photo and the magnificent sharpness on the bird. I am sure you did not have the control over leaves and twigs but maybe cloning a few out might not hurt the composition.

Hello Rakesh and welcome to TN. I think this is a really fine image. The 1.4 extender certainly works will with the 600mm. Unfortunately I don't think I could even lift that lens! I really love the colors in this image. The sharpness of the bird against the soft pastel background is quite lovely.

Such a wonderful wonderful shot...!!!
And such a wonderful bird...!!!
The details, DOF and POV are excellent...
I have never seen a Malabar Pied Hornbill until now...
But my village is home to lots of Malabar Grey Hornbills...
Hope I get a chance to capture the grey hornbill as beautifully as this picture...

A very professional looking wildlife image.
Well isolated from the background and great clarity on the bird.

Beautiful shot! The colours and light look charming. The out of focus uncluttered bg with soft light makes the subject stand out really well. I wud have liked a little more light on the eye. Anyways, an excellent shot. Thanks for sharing.
