This is a beautiful bird and you shot him in a pose which captures the essence of your description. Skulkers are very difficult birds to shoot as well as this image. The skulkers I'm familiar with usually have dull plumage unlike this colorful bird. Should view this image uncompressed. Well done.

Thanks for your appreciation,this habitat (NE India) shares a lot of skulkers,they are restless,fast moving and remain in mixed hunting flock in secondary forest thicket and some are solitary who are even hard to see!

Your talent, knowledge of and empathy with your subjects shines through all your images Debapratim. This is a stunningly beautiful capture of a wonderful little species. The exquisite detail and colour palette are a pleasure to view. Bravo!

One of my favourites of your images, Debapratim. The eye, especially for me, is what makes this photograph so good;
plus everything else of course!
