Fantastic capture, Debapratim! The color and plumage of the Hornbill is stunning, the wings down pose is wonderful, the soft lighting is beautiful, and the background is excellent. Congrats on such a fine image!

Debapratim, killer shot of this amazing species, terrific wings forward pose and lovely BG.  Great job bringing out both the darks and light of bird and the drizzly situation certainly adds to the mood - a real beauty - congrats!
