    Hi Apana,
    Lovely image. I like the sharpness and the X formed by the branches at the base. It seems mildly dark. I brightened the image slightly and opened the shadows...

    Apana,

    This image is very good and the colours are striking.

    A question:

    You have posted many raptors shot at Bangalore. Now that Bangalore has become a concrete mess, where do you find them ??

    Secondly, any updates about their status ?

    Best,

    Lakshminarayanan

    Lakshminarayanan,

    The birds are more resilient than we expect them to be, but they can't hang on forever. This is why we must document locations and file them so development does not occur in these areas.

    Nice image. The eye is sharp and clear and so is the body feathers. The perch looks good. Is this also handheld? I hope there is rain this year so that we can have some good birding.

    Cheers,
