nice picture..good composition

Well done, Ashok.
One would expect underexposure but it has to be said there's no such sign as the bird's lighting and colours are very good.

You must have been very close, using that lens. I love the composition and pose of the bird and the shadows give a tension, very nice!
Best regards/Bengt
