    I like watching these fellows spread their tails. Saw one in bhubaneshwar on my rooftop but didn't have camera in hand. While shooting high ISOs, it would also help exposing to the right and pulling down the exposure later in post. That would help the dark areas get more light and less grains. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    Nice sighting. Difficult to photograph as they are very agile. The characteristic white throat and eye brow can be seen clearly. Liked the eye contact and the perch. How is the sightings there now? Thanks for sharing.

    Monigram seems to be a bird's Paradise .It is difficult to capture this bird because it is extremely agile and continuously darting about catching flies from the air .Also it is difficult to expose both the black and white feathers effectively.A plus exposure has a better chance of capturing details . Thanks for sharing .
