Hello Akbar,
What a lovely image of this beautiful Grey Bush Chat. The detail is exceptional and the exposure is right on the money. Wonderful eye contact with just a tad of catchlight. Great shot!!
Hope you don't mind, but I noticed you said the bird didn't look very grey so I tried to adjust the color in a WS.

Your 50x Canon is really good for bird photography, I can see, Akbar. It is better than low graded 300mm lens which I have. Yes color looks little bit different due to light here. Don't know the setting of your WB here! Nice presentation. Thanks for sharing. Best Wishes

First rate capture of this bird I also occasionally see here in Jammu, Akbar.
The plumage is looking light, but maybe it is because of bright light.

Hello Akbar,

Thanks for the share and Regards,
