~ Rufous Treepie ~
The Rufous Treepie (Dendrocitta vagabunda) is a treepie, native to the Indian Subcontinent and adjoining parts of Southeast Asia . It is a member of the Corvidae (crow) family. It is long tailed and has loud musical calls making it very conspicuous. It is found commonly in open scrub, agricultural areas, forests as well as urban gardens.
Got it in a jungle near my hometown. While it was searching for its breakfast...
~ Enjoy It ~

Nice colors. Very compact. Good catch.
I think it is a patient job to have these tiny and busy things against a proper background and an uninterrupted foreground. It is difficult too.
But very well done as usual.

Another well presented nature image. A well framed image that benefits much from your excellent control over depth of field. Superb colours and clarity.

Encore une très belle photo animalière. Le point de vue est excellent et le choix de la profondeur de champs donne un très beau flou de l'arrière plan. L'oiseau est d'une grande netteté.

this is a wonderful series, with all the shots so perfectly executed, detailed and beautifully presented. A colourful bird and begs the question why are our UK crows so dull in comparison? Excellent!

The lovely bird shows us its best side by letting us admire its profile. The grey feathers match the twigs very well and the orange parts make a great contrast to the green background. A very sharp and well taken photo.

another lovely portrait in action. I like very much the way the branch and twigs spread within your frame, their dynamism, sharpness and silvery tones are so attractive against the green backdrop. Although it would be perfect if the tip of the beak wasn't hidden, I realize how difficult a capture of this kind is and I love the interesting posture and captivating eye of the bird. Depth and textures are excellent, you used the soft lighting superbly. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Namaste, my friend Subhendu,
this is another gorgeous close-up on a bird, a good sample of your last works.
I like the impeccable management of the field depth, which offers us the image of the bird in a good 3D sense.
It's not an easy shot, indeed, but you have created a very beautiful composition here.
P.S: My little activity on the site is due to my job and to the time that we dedicate to our grand-children. In nine months I will be retired and probably I will have more time, though my grandchildren also need our attention.
