You have a keen eye!! Excellent shot maybe not from wildlife photography perspective but I love the attitude the shot exudes.

What lens?

Since someone else said they wanted a portrait, I liked this shot better than the portrait one.. to each his own!

Besides what do I know about the subject, lol!!

Finally, remember not to overexpose
Thanks a ton for the tip.

Excellent one Fazal! Only request is to crop the shot to avoid OOD nest and clone out that branch behind.

Yeah please crop it Fazal else it looks as though the branch is stuck right into the throat of the bird.

I wouldn't tell you to clone out whats in the pic, but yeah a little narrower aperture, might have got the beak in focus too. Nice shot though!

And if I may ask you why? There is always another interesting and different point of view. So please share.

No, but I did live there during 1979-82. My Kodava thak is totally rusty now, but I can understand perfectly.

Thanks for your inputs, Tomorrow I will try a smaller aperture from another angle to avoid the branch.
