Pycnonotus cafer - Kizil Arapbulbulu
Though this bird is a resident on my school campus and I see it almost every day, your capture of it in Abu Dhabi is of greater significance, Dr Ahmet.
It is a lovely picture that shows the features of the bird including its red vent very nicely. The subject looks relaxed on that branch.
I was lucky to have a female Hypocolius visiting me in Riyadh one winter in 2006/7. Sorry that you did not find it in the UAE. However, there is always a next time in nature imagery.
All the best!

Merhaba Ahmet bey,
Good to see you again, especially with such a beautiful photo. Instead of telling the usual "excellent colors, perfect DoF etc." hotch-potch I mention if you move the image fastly on your screen with the mouse up and down, feathers on the wing tip seem vibrating like in strong wind. Amazing optical illusion and wonderful moirée effect. Exceptional photo. Bravo.
Best regards, László

How geography and availability changes perspective? In India the Bulbul is so common even in the cities and a nuisance during birding due to its aggressive behavior. But for you it must have been a treat a rarity in your part of the world. Your exposure of this one is beautiful, quite apt for this lovely bird.

A super sharp image with a lot of pleasant details to appreciate. The colours are spectacular, the details beautifully seen and the very close point of view great. I like the almost fulled framed composition. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
