This is another image of the Black naped Monarch. The image was shot late in the evening under a fading light. Had to bump up the ISO under the fading light which resulted in a grainy image.

Hello Satirtha,
A gorgeous bird indeed, almost seems to glow in this lighting.. As you already eluded to there is a bit of noise, but you have managed to capture a wonderful image in spite of the low light. Great eye contact with a bit of catchlight visible.

..so very beautiful bird and capture ! I Love it ...big time !!!

As a matter of fact, light plays a vital role in this beautiful picture, Satirtha. Colours and contrasts have turned out to be the best in the ambient light.

Ciao Saturtha, great capture of lovely bird in nice pose, perfect focus, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, Merry Christmas and Happy new year, ciao Silvio

Hi Satirtha

The Monarch is a beautiful bird and looks so even in this cold fading light capture. Like it.

Hi Satirtha
Despite the poor light you caught well this cute bird, rare to me.
Beautiful blue tones.


Sometimes that subtle ambient light makes it work so well for the subjects colors, this is a perfect case where it looks quite pleasing.
