I am not sure what species of a bird this is, but surely liked the way it bent all the way to look at what I was upto? I think that was what it was upto! Anyone IDing this beauty will be thanked immensely.

Hi Kiran
it's a very fanny position of the bird, good capture and composition,
Good DOF, POV and colours.

Ahh, this is a great photo! I really like that you didn't crop it to cloase and left so much of the surrounding environment here. Fantastic colours and pose!

Hi Kiran, I love these kind of shots showing the bird's inquisitiveness. I find that the tilt their head when they hear the camera shutter. It is a very pretty bird and you have a good capture and great POV. Well framed.

Bonjour Kiran
Qu'elle belle prise de cette espèce d'oiseau que je n'avais jamais vu... Les détails sont excellents, merci du partage,
Merci et au revoir...JP

Hi Kiran,
Do you confirm the location as being on Bali? Do you have other views, in particular, of the crown and nape? The closest I can come to it from just this one photo would be a male Agelaius icterocephalus - and it should not be on Bali - unless as an escape.
