Hello Zahoor
So this little beauty is a blue-fronted redstart. I don't think I have heard of this one before.
What a pretty little colourful bird it is. Those orange / red feathers are so vibrant.
Well taken image - nice and sharp too

Hi Zahoor,
A nice capture of this beautiful redstart bird. Superb details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Zahoor,

If not for little bold image, the picture is well taken, nice details, compo,back ground etc. I personally like pictures in pictorial composition. TFS.

Hi Zahoor,
Just a note on the ID. Not P. frontalis (Blue-fronted Redstart). The fastest way to eliminate frontalis is by looking at the color of the undertail, when it is visible, of course - frontalis has black feather tips distally and very visible from below. Moreover, the head of frontalis (as well as the throat and pectoral bib) is really blue, not this black seen here with a smoky grey crown. So, what is this? This is an adult male Phoenicurus ochruros phoenicuroides - Black Redstart.

Hi Zahoor,

Great capture.
Nice colours with excellent detail.
Composition and lighting are good.
