Hi Joy,very nice specie and beautiful perspective too,original and whit great details and colors,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Joy,

Very interesting perspective ... light on forward part of bird makes the picture in the dark BG. The bird is definitely struggling and hanging on for dear life to the small sharp leaf. Calming effect to look upon this small bird.


Hi Joydeb
what a nice shot of pretty indian silverbill that I have seen it only United Arab Emirates. Focus, POV and DOF great. Plain BG also very nice as like composition and frame.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful shot.
I wish a happy new year to you and your family.
all the best

Hi Joydeb
He presents a strong image. You have captured it well with a good POV and DOV. You have captured such good detail in both
the shadow and hi-light areas.
Thanks for sharing
