|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a pair of Red Whiskered Bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus) which has been frequent visitors to my office garden during lunch hours over the last few weeks. I think they were scouting for proper nesting place, alas our surroundings didnt offer them the necessary conditions.|
Could capture these two sitting very close by on the Mango tree by only one such lunch hour.
Had to go for ISO 800 because of the dark shade that a Mango Canopy offers. Some PP to lighten up the image a bit and to remove noise.
Wikipedia has a detailed and comprehensive info on this bird since it is rather common urban resident.

Those are some beautifull birds! Youve had some hard light. but you managed it well. Too bad the bird on the right is a bit out of focus. Would have been nice. Thanks!
This is such a special image of these Red Whiskered Bulbulls with details of there plumage beautifully captured and displayed. I like everything in this image very much, from their poses, the opened beak of the one, maybe singing a great song, up to their swanky crests. I really like this image. It is just so pretty. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Magnificent capture of this couple,a great and beautiful specie and a fantastic quality,not easy a perfection like that in this difficult light,you work very very well for the best sharpness and colors.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
La trop faible opposition des sujets sur leur arrière plan n'est pas un avantage pour bien les valoriser.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
You are lucky! It is a great pleasure for me to see such composition.
I like these birds very much and try to capture some images.
