Hallo Arindam
This is a lovely image, so natural and how it should be in the life of young Red-vented Bulbul waiting for its mom to bring food. I very much like the bright colours and the natural sunlight in the image, and then that opened beak pose is an additional bonus and a pleasure to look at and enjoy. I like the composition and the close point of view. Thanks for sharing a very pleasant image. Best regards.

Good shot of this juvenile Red-vented Bulbul, Arindam.
The focus is ideally sharp and the colours are rich and natural.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Arindam,

This is a fine image of a Red-vented Bulbel. I always like it when a bird is shown calling -- in this case, for its mother. Your shallow DOF has resulted in a 3D effect. Very crisp shot with natural colours. TFS.
