[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The slaty-backed forktail (Enicurus schistaceus) is a species of forktail in the family Muscicapidae. A slim, medium-sized forktail, it is distinguished from similar species by its slate grey forehead, crown, and mantle. It has a long and deeply forked tail banded in black and white, a white rump, and a white bar across its primary feathers; the rest of the plumage is predominantly white. The sexes look alike. The bird frequents the edges of fast-flowing streams and rivers, where it hunts small invertebrates by hopping among rocks or flying out over the water. It breeds between February and July, laying 3–4 pinkish, bluish, or white eggs; both sexes incubate the eggs.

You have a truly amazing variety of birds in your area, Biswarup.
This is a cute bird and the picture is well composed.

Hello Biswarup,
No doubt, beautiful bird. Well captured. Details are quite well and colour looks beautiful. But framing isn't perfect, to me. Fill the frame with subject or supporting subject. Too much BLANK SPACE in the right portion which you could cropped it out. When background is too busy, just crop tightly and in such way you don't need to use Gaussian Blur. It will comes out nicely a picture of beautiful bird in its natural habitat. Just ignore if you don't like it.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,
ভালো থেকো।
