A prize picture, indeed, Mr Nandy. This is a rare species of Cuckoo and you have made a valuable contribution to TN by shooting and posting such a sharp and precise picture of this bird. The eye in specific makes it a technically outstanding image.
I really felt deprived by not having a bigger zoom lens during my visit to Sultanpur.

Great capture of this merulinus Cacomantis querulus, Samiran friend! In addition, you have wisely made a poetic background with a crossroads of branches and leaves on a blue sky. All very difficult to realize with a shot freehand. My sincere congratulations, friend ...

Hi Samiran, Stunned sharpness of this bird. 3D effect from 3 different layers of depth of fields created by the branches. Nice POV and composition. Thank very much

Interesting name for this Cuckoo-species given by the male plaintive calls, if I read correctly your note. Very natural and fine picture of a seldom bird which you are the only one on this site to show a picture. So double thanks to you!

Hello Samiran bhai,
Hope you are doing fine. What a nice shot!Once again perched atop an acacia branch you have captured this bird in a flawless fashion and what can be more rewarding when the bird is a rare visitor to TN so a great contribution in that respect as well.Almost all cuckoos' are elusive birds as you already know.This is a clean, winner shot and I do definitely second Ram and others here about the value of this shot in more than one way.
Thanks a lot sharing this and for your photography tips as well....smile. Take care,
