    Default Khaleej Pheasant female

    A female Khaleej Pheasant pauses for a moment from foraging to raise its head to look at any signs of danger in Corbett National Park, India.
    This is from my archives.

    Sir , too young and too in-experience to comment on your work.
    Lovely framed and ground level shots makes it even better. Lovely eye contact. Looks like the focus point is SPOT-ON eye. Is it spot metering OR Evaluate metering?

    Nice closeup of this shy bird. I am still to get a photograph of this. The low angle makes it interesting. Good details. Thanks for sharing.

    Vipin,
    This was shot way back in 2008. So hopefully I have learnt something more. I use evaluative metering and have seen it becoming better and better over the years. The trick is to understand the way the camera's metering system works. Once you know the principle it becomes easier to use in any situation.

    Roopak,
    This was shot in the evening while coming back from the Bijrani range. Stopped the vehicle when a few of these birds appeared at a distance. Then taking cover of the vehicle moved close and hid behind a rock. The birds then came closer and I waited for the right light. I clicked when the light was coming from the behind at an angle which helped in getting the rim light. I would have loved a higher shutter speed, unfortunately the light was low and the ground was uneven. I had placed my left hand on the ground and rested the lens on it. So I tried to make the camera steady and shoot carefully. Since the birds were very close, I couldn't shoot in a burst as they would have got scared. Thankfully even thoguh I was shooting at 800mm, the shots were fine.
    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi
