[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Emerald Doves (Chalcophaps indica natalis) are very secretive and shy. Thus, although they are quite common, they are rarely seen.

The Emerald Dove (Christmas Island) is a small, plump short-tailed pigeon. It is mostly purplish brown, with iridescent dark-green wings and a pale shoulder-patch. Females are generally duller than males and lack a pale shoulder-patch.

Hi Biswarup.
I like your nice gallery. This picture is very nice too. I like its great sharpness, amazing lighting and beautiful rich colours. Very well selected DOF: BG is blurred a bit and well detailed. It looks nicely. Composition is perfect too. My compliments and TFS.
