    Absolutely top class. This is the other variety found in peninsular India, particularly in Western Ghats.
    In any conflict between man and animal it is the animal that has to suffer.

    Hi Amit,

    Welcome to IndiaWilds.

    Beautiful first post. The composition is nice. The eye contact and the details are good. The clean background adds to the composition. Is this full frame? Look forward to more.

    Hi Amit,
    Welcome to IndiaWilds!

    Nice image. What was the shutter speed and ISO and amount of crop?

    Sharing a little bit of information from Birds of South Asia, The Ripley Guide by Pamella C. Rasmussen and John C. Anderton:

    Id: A small thrush, the only regional one with rufous crown, nape and underparts, note white shoulder, belly and vent. Male has bright orange crown and slaty-blue upperparts. Female has slightly duller rufous crown, dull olive mantle and wings.
    Variation: Himalayan nominate has unmarked orange-rufous head, and broad white bar on upperwing; juvenile has almost uniform dull rufous head except for dark smudges down face; breast washed orange with a little dark mottling.

    Peninsular cyanota: White face, throat and ear-coverts with broad dark streaks below and behind eye ('running mascara'); has white shoulder as does nominate, but crown olive-tinged; juvenile has dark brown crown to mantle with fine paler streaks and a little fufous spotting; facial smudges are even broader; breast dark brown with a little rufuous mottling.

    In NE Peninsula (E Madhya, Orissa), amadoni (not always recognised) has a longer wing and brighter orange crown than cyanota.

    Nicobars albogularis is much darker rufous, with diffuse chestnut stripes on smaller, weaker white face and throat patches; no white wing-bar.

    Andamans andamanensis
    is similar to albogularis but paler.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi

    HI Guys,

    Thanks for your words. Sorry I forgot about more details. Iso was 200, i dont really remember ss as I always shoot in aperture mode. Yes its a full frame shot.

    Sabyasachi thanks for detailed info. Yes this race differs from the one found in north as these guys have dark bands on cheek.

    Well I usually dont chase down birds. I prefer to wait wait wait and wait for them in suitable place. In this case I was lucky. This chap completely ignored us and kept getting close to us. We could have touched him many times during that shoot out. He was least bothered by out movements. We stood up, walked and changed cards but this fella was still there. This was shot before he crossed MFD and came with in 2 feet range.

    The composition is nice. A vertical would have been nice too. The sharpness is fine. The focus is on the eye and is good. A bit more head turn in your direction would have been better. Good to know that you could get this full frame. Thanks for sharing.
