Hi Biswarup,excellent capture of this munia,i like the blue sky in background,minimalistic composition and good sharpness too.have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Ciao Biswarup, great capture of lovely bird, beautiful diagonal composition, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Good image of a Scaly-breasted Munia, Biswarup.
The blue sky makes a nice BG, but then those cable perches are a different matter altogether.

Hello Biswarup,
It always a difficult shot facing lens above. Quite well captured this Munia if we look at its details and color. Nice to see you were able focus on its eye even in such difficult angle. It would have been a better shot if you captured it vertically; to frame it perfectly. Here too much BLANK SPACE in the back of the bird and need little bit crop front portion too.
But cable line doesn't work in nature photography. Try to avoid MAN MADE ARTICLE.
Thanks for sharing,
Best wishes,
