    Default White Capped Redstart

    I wanted to see this bird for a while, thankfully I could spot it at Tunganath. It was friskily hopping place to place and didn't stop for a single idle moment. Managed to make this image. The white on the head is the tricky one, tends to get over exposed. Light was quite low.

    Nikon D7000, f/7.1,SS 1/1250,ISO 1600,ec +.3, 420mm (300mm f4+1.4xTC)

    Nice sighting. Good eye contact. The composition with the wild yellow flowers in the background look nice. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for pointing that out Roopak. I realized that the image size was over 300kb inspite of being within the 1024 x 1024 co-ordinates, therefore it re-sized automatically and hence the softness. I have re-sized it from my end and uploaded again. This looks sharper.

    Nice to see it in its habitat. How much of a crop is this? The focus appears to be infront of the bird. You should be able to judge it better by watching the original capture at 100%. Because of the nice flowers, I would have loved a deeper depth of field, but you were already at f7.1 and unless you had stopped down a further 2.3rd of a stop if not 1 full stop the increase in depth of field may not have been very apparent. Thanks for sharing. Look forward to more.

    Nice habitat image. Both the great songbirds - Salim Ali's favourite Greywinged Blackbird and Krishnan's White-rumped Shama are found in the Himalaya. Thanks for sharing.SaktiWild
