    Default Indian Pitta

    Indian Pitta is a summer to monsoon visitor in West Bengal and in this time they are preparing nest in this region. This is for first time that I have seen this beauty in the Sal-Teak Jungle of north Durgapur, near Ajay River, Paschim Barddhaman on July, 2017. I have found more than 5 pitta in this region, preparing nest and having chicks in the nest. It is a good sign for this species who has shared safe habitat in our region.

    Nice pose and eye contact. Good to know their number is increasing in that area. Seems there is some loss of details. Is this a crop? Or any noise reduction done? Thanks for sharing.

    I think along with noise reduction there is lot of highlight recovery. Our eyes need details. Noise reduction wipes away those. In many wildlife situations the noise gets hidden in the body texture of the subject. Ofcourse one needs to expose correctly so that the noise doesn't become a challenge. I hardly ever do any noise reduction beyond the default setting in lightroom. The 7D II has got good ISO performance. So noise shouldn't be an issue for you.

    Thanks for the comment....I have observed that my lens is not sufficient for low light photography at all....7D M 2 is very challenging body for me till now.....I hope that in near future I shall do better photography....
