[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Though it has been raining here in Jammu quite heavily in the past few days, the weather is turning better gradually. Today was a bright and sunny morning and I caught this Pipit enjoying the sunshine.

The Paddyfield Pipit, or Oriental Pipit (Anthus rufulus) is a small passerine bird in the pipit and wagtail family. It is a resident (non-migratory) breeder in open scrub, grassland and cultivation in southern Asia east to the Philippines. Although among the few breeding pipits in the Asian region, identification becomes difficult in winter when several other species migrate into the region. The taxonomy of the species is complex and has undergone considerable changes.

Hello Ram
Not super sharp but from viewing the feet I am guessing it was moving when you took this photo. Good eye contact with a bit of catchlight. Colors appear natural.

Bonjour Ram,
Le cadrage me semble un peu trop large mais le sujet est tout de même relativement bien valorisé.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Lovely capture of this pipit.

Hello Ram,
I think that is is something wrong with this site....I can see on the first page that my image is the last one posted since yesterday....no points shown in the front....
Thanks for visiting my gallery. Lovely specie of bird. In my country in the summer I meet only ANTHUS CAMPESTRIS, with almost the same colors and shape with this one.....
Nice image.
