[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
White-bellied blue robin (earlier shortwing), are endangered, endemic birds in montane habitats of southwest India - an Endemic Bird Area where over 20 restricted range and several more sub-continental endemics (mostly shared with Sri Lanka) occur.

This was a very cooperative bird, allowing me within 10-15 feet of it before hopping off into the undergrowth!

Please note, that I reposted from yesterday - I brightened the image a little for the bird to stand out better.

Hi Ravi,
Excellent capture.
I like very much.
Colors, contrast, beautiful light.
Have a pleasant day,

Hi Ravi,

I have not seen this bird yet. Very well done. Nice composition with the bird just looking into the lense. Very well presented.


hello Ravi
much better...

Nice to encounter this endangered beautiful bird on TN. Well done, Thanks

Hi Ravi,

Excellent capture, I congratulate you for the contrast and depth achieved. Good optical adjustment. Excellent approach. I have some doubts about the composition, I pull too central. However, it is not affecting the overall result of the photo.

Well done MF!

Hello Ravi,
Beautiful photo of this Blue Robin. Amazing pose with eye-contact. Sharpness and details in the bird are very good. Beautiful natural colours. The environment is a bit busy, maybe you can crop a little bit more of these branches.

Ravi, this is such a good photo of the robin. Great job. Thanks for commenting on my Bluebirds. I appreciate it very much. You have a great week. Bill
