During my trek toward putundas, Hunza, Pakistan I saw this baby bird who was wandering around us. as I saw he was sitting on rock and his posture was like a invitation to expose. I did this because he was so charming to me.Thanks for sharing and time.Nadeem Khawar.

Hi Nadeem.
What a cute fluffy creature. I like terrific reproduction of all its feathers, pose and mood. The old peace of wood is amazing BG for it. Very nice composition, pleasant light colour palette and impressive POV. My compliments and kind regards.

Hello Nadeem,
Superb sharp capture of a juvenile Black Redstart (Phoenicurus ochruros), beautifully composed on the lichen-covered rock against a fine bokeh BG. A shot of professional quality taken by a professional!
Thanks for sharing it,
Regards, Ivan

The log in the front is alittle ditracting but I can understand why it had to be there,
Great image,

Nadeem - I have no idea what bird this is, but I love how you've captured it. So sweet looking and each feather in such detail. Great colors and exposure is perfect! Well done! Penny

Hello again Nadeem, I am very fond of your pictures, you have a keen eye for composition, it is really nice. I also love those natural colours and beautiful, no need to oversaturate, it is beautiful as is and you show it very well. The colours of the fungi on the wood with the little baby bird is fantastic. This is a touching picture with a lot of feeling over the vulnerability and beauty of this bird. Thanks again,

Hello Nadeem, well done on this great capture, very sharp, good pose and composition. Great quality shot, thanks!


Wonderful beige tones in this bird. It looks very much like our American Redstart with the exception of the colours. Ours is red with a bit of black on the wing. They have the same shape though. Well; a very nice shot. TFS Trevor
