[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The spangled drongo (Dicrurus bracteatus) is a bird of the family Dicruridae. It is the only drongo to be found in Australia where it can be recognised by its black, iridescent plumage and by its characteristic forked tail. It feeds on insects and small vertebrates. It has complex and varied calls and is a mimic of the sounds it hears. It arrives in Queensland in late spring and breeds high in an isolated tree, producing three to five young each year.

Beautiful blue tones and depth of field.


The lens gives you scope to capture a close-up shot of the bird without losing anything, Biswarup. However, you seem to prefer to have much of the branch within the frame and no the bird exclusively.
I would have preferred a bigger bird image instead.

দারুন ফিঙে তো! আগে দেখিনি।
