WOW.  What a wonderful image of a beautiful bird. It's mix of red and black is very striking.  This is one of those shots that come along that you say "wish it were mine".  Couldn't think of a nicer pose, perch, or background for this Minivet. Terrific !!

Superbly taken and presented image of this stunning species, Debapratim! The red and black plumage is a wonderful combination and the detail exquisite. My hat is off to you again!

Minivets are striking birds, all of them. And this image does them justice. Really nice job.

What a beautiful bird Deb!! Pose, perch, BG and details look great. A little hot on some of the reds, but that is one hard bird to expose for.
Well done and congrats
