About the Image(s)

The image was made recently when I was birding near my native place.
I liked posture and plumage colours of this Cattle Egret. It was captured with Nikon D500, f/6.3 s1/1600 ISO 800 @ 500 mm.

The posture makes the photo unique and the color contrast between the head and the body make the photo almost surreal. Very nice capture.   Posted: 10/08/2020 20:53:56

I like posture, too. Good detail of the eye and wing feathers.
The dark background sets it off beautifully. Very nice portrait.
Oh to have a 500 mm lens.   Posted: 10/16/2020 18:42:08

Great portrait Subhash. Nice and sharp and good color. The shapes and angles really enhance this image. What lens are you using?   Posted: 10/18/2020 09:05:24

Thanks for your observation. This shot was made with Nikon 200-500 mm f/5.6, but at times I also use Nikon 70-200 mm f/2.8 + Nikon TC 1.7.   Posted: 10/18/2020 21:55:46

Great capture. Very beautiful colors of the bird. The eye and the features of the bird are very sharp and detailed. The background is nice. The bird is very nicely cropped also. Well done.   Posted: 10/19/2020 12:28:05
