[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The common green magpie (Cissa chinensis) is a member of the crow family, roughly about the size of the Eurasian jay or slightly smaller. It is a vivid green in colour (often fades to turquoise in captivity), slightly lighter on the underside and has a thick black stripe from the bill (through the eyes) to the nape. Compared to the other members of its genus, the white-tipped tail is quite long. This all contrasts vividly with the red fleshy eye rims, bill and legs. The wings are reddish maroon. When dead, the colour of the bird changes into blue (according to H.J. Noltie's Natural History Drawings from the Collection of Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles).

Hi Biswarup,good sharpness in a difficult light,a very nice green magpie,beautiful colors and plumage design too. Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Now this is what I term a masterly capture with your long lens, Biswarup.
Superb POV, sharpness and colours.
This lens creates a DOF that makes the subject just stand out.
I give you 10/10 for perfect use of your big lens.

রংটং-এর রং-চঙে পাখি। Beautiful species. But editing doesn't look good. Due to blur tool in the background, feathers and edges looks too sharp. Have a look the feather, just under the beak. Focus on bird is also not well distributed. Have a look on its beak.
But well finding such beautiful bird.
Keep shooting,

Hi Biswarup,
Colorful and spectacular species, and although the focus is a bit soft and the bird could be sharper, a nicely composed diagonal image with great contrast and color gamut. I like it.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
