    Default Red Berries & a Red Eye... Asian Koel

    Dear Friends,

    It's a pleasure watching birds in their environment especially near their food source. Lucky to have spotted this Asian Koel, female very close to where I was standing.

    We were in Uran (place near Navi Mumbai known for wetlands) looking for some water-birds ,unaware of rich arboreal life. Suddenly saw my friend focusing on small mangrove shrub near me. Without making any sound, realized, this specimen feeding on red berries. There is never enough time ,when you are so close & immediately shot with focal length available & existing settings.

    Before we could alter our settings to get full body of bird, it was gone. Also other parts were all hidden in the shrub & only head was visible prominently.

    Hope you like & enjoy it.

    EXIF : Canon 550D, Tamron 100-400mm @400mm, f/8, Tv :1/500, ISO :640 , 40% Cropped (60% retained), PP in LR5.7

    Regards/ Anil Kumar Verma

    Lovely composition. The red eye looks striking and the berries match it beautifully. Nicely captured. Thanks for sharing.

    Stunning red eye. Lovely frame. The eye contact is nice. The berries look colour coordinated with the eye. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    Very nice perspective, bird and the berry in unison. At one point of time many year ago Uran used to be the place to go looking fro flamingoes, but now they are pretty common in the creeks of Sewri and Airoli. Thanks for sharing.
