    Nice sighting. Good eye contact and the vertical composition looks good to include its long tail feathers. There is some loss of details and noise, maybe due to crop. Have heard its melodious calls early mornings in the jungles, but not got a good photograph of it yet . Thanks for sharing.

    Nice pose. The eye contact is nice. Did you hear its voice this time? Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
