|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I took this picture in November 2010 near the banks of Ganges in Allahabad.|
The Indian Robin (Saxicoloides fulicatus) widely found in Indian sub-continent. They are commonly found perching on low thorny shrubs and rocks. Their long tails are held erect and their chestnut undertail covert and dark body make them easily distinguishable from the Pied Bushchat and the Oriental Magpie Robin.
The Indian Robin is sexually dimorphic in plumage. The males have chestnut undertail coverts and these are visible as the bird usually holds the 6–8 cm long tail raised upright. The females are brownish above, have no white shoulder stripe and are greyish below with the vent a paler shade of chestnut than the males.

an very nice image from you from this bird in natural environment with good pov and sharpness.
Lovely image of this incredible little bird with so fine and "modern" color set up...dark blue and brown! Wow. Good detail on the exposed from the sunlight area, and relatively good sharpness. The background and the foreground is a bit messy but once again this is not a studio shot! Bravo Vinay, good job!
Very good quality image with lovely colours and detail. Well done.
