[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken hand held from the car. The bird looked at the flower so inquisitively and took few pictures. Nowdays these birds have started thier nesting.Both male and female look alike.

wow I think you got a winner here, what an awesome shot. Maybe you can blur the background a bit more

Hi Satish

Great shot of this bulbul. We have this species around Sydney - introduced in the late 1800s.
Great composition and good sharpness.


So nice POV especially diagonal position of bird. sharpness and natural colors are also fascinating

hello Satish
A beautiful bird capture with very sharp details and beautiful colors, nice composition too.

Hi Satish
it takes much more than just a beautiful bird to take a good picture, and this is a great demonstration of it. Just great compo!

Lovely picture Satish, I really like the inquisitive look the bird has at the flower...as if its something from outer space :)

Wow Satish, its a wonderful capture! Details are very clear and sharpness is even across the shot. It was indeed a very nice moment to capture the bird when it was looking so closely and suspiciously... :) Composition is very good. Just one question - did you use flash?



Hello Satish
wonderful capture for beautiul bulbul species with blue flower. great focus and POV. timing and colors also great. flower great for composition. thanks so much for sharing, best wishes

The blurring of background at f/8 with greater dark shades and abundant lighting of the objects and the curiosity of the bird in exploring flower makes it very lovely.
