Hi all, This is another picture of the silverbill that i shot, Here i wanted to show the bird in its full glory.

Indian Silverbill or White-throated Munia (Lonchura malabarica) is a small passerine bird found in the Indian Subcontinent and andjoining regions that was formerly considered to include the closely related African Silverbill (Lonchura cantans). This estrildid finch is a common resident breeding bird in the drier regions of the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent. It has also been introduced into many other parts of the world and has become established in some areas. They forage in small flocks in grassland and scrub habitats.

nice presentation. good background and nicely framed. tfs.

Ideal POV that really show the bird in its best possible aspect, Goutham. The entire plumage and the head of the bird are in full view. The blurred BG not only highlights the subject but also gives a lovely impression of the ambience of the location where you shot this Siverbill.

Wonderful sharpness and blurred background - a very nice portrait of this little bird.

Hello Goutham,
This is really a beauty....What I like most are the fantastic grey colors of the wings. As usual a perfect focus and WB. Superb.....Another masterpiece with excellent clarity and sharp details.
Thanks for sharing!
