Amazing clarity- gorgeous shot! I like the intent look in it's eye-focused on the food, I'm guessing.

An excellent image, of truly, a stunning species, Sandeep. Wonderful flight pose, and great colours captured here, including the background.

That's quite a bird and a beautiful capture with the wings and tail spread showing the wonderful colors and patterns. The nice light and pretty background make it a real winner.

Great looking bird to catch in flight so well. His slight head turn is terrific as it enables the view of his eye very well.
