[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have taken this shot at Tal Chhapar Sanctuary. The Rose-ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri), also known as the Ringnecked Parakeet, is a gregarious tropical parakeet species that is popular as a pet. Its scientific name commemorates the Austrian naturalist Wilhelm Heinrich Kramer.

This non-migrating species is one of few parrot species that have successfully adapted to living in 'disturbed habitats', and in that way withstood the onslaught of urbanisation and deforestation. In the wild, this is a noisy species with an unmistakable squawking call.

As is the case with all Psittacula (Afro-Asian Ringnecked Parakeet) species, the Rose-ringed Parakeet is sexually dimorphic. The adult male sports a black neck-ring and pink nape-band while the hen and immature birds of both sexes either show no neck rings, or display shadow-like pale to dark grey neck-rings and light (lighter coloured than surroundings) nape-bands.

This is a real beauty. Gary

Hi Anil,

The branches are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors the Rose-ringed Parakeet. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi Anil,
you put this much centered, a little concentration of composition could help this a beautiful shot hence check the brightness on the chest, next every aspect is fine, TFS.

An excellent shot with beautiful coloration, great sharpness & fine details. Well done & TFS.
