Hi Srikumar
Stunning details on the bird enhanced by the blurred bg.
Interesting note as well.


FANTASTIC low angle shot.Very well exposed dark colored body and the eye.

Bonjour Srikumar,
Une belle attitude du sujet et une bonne profondeur de champ mais surtout une très belle lumière qui fait resplendir de splendides couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Srikumar,
Excellent photo .... I wonder if this bird is as smart as the European Magpie...The plumage is very similar...

Hello Srikumar,
I really like the rear POV with an over the shoulder glance. This gives us a great view of the entire bird minus the breast. Excellent eye contact with a bit of catchlight. The iridescent blue colors are gorgeous and you managed to capture fine detail. Exposure is right on the money and the BG is lovely.

Hi Srikumar,
Beautiful image of this Robin which also I used to see from my window, excellent details and colors.
Best regards,

Hello Srikumar

Excellent photo of the « National Bird Of Bangladesh », very fine POV
forcing the bird to have an eye-contact with you with the head turned,
great focus, sharpness, and details, TFS
