You either have a great telephoto lens, or you know your way around charming all sort of critters. The subjects on all your animal photos always seem to pose for your camera!

A nice sharp close up

Maran said...

Very close shot there. Is it telephoto? I'm thinkin about getting one but no money and confused? Should I stick to Canon or try Sigma and Tamron, how many mm? So many questions for a lens I probably use twice a year!
Now thinkin about getting a 50mm prime :-)

Lovely shot ! A postcard indeed :)

adel said...

crisp and sharp for a close up shot - lovely! I love the detailing on the feathers.

This is a superb shot, Nish. I'd have printed it 12x8 or larger and made a wall hanging of it. Perfect metering!

Suyog said...

Great shot! How did you manage to get so close to it or do you use a telephoto lens. You have composed the shot very well.

cool bird - I love that long beak. Any idea what it is?

Nish said...

Thanks guys for your comments.
this shot was clicked with my fuji s5000 which has a 37-370 lens. the birds in Ranganthittu are really used to people. i was in the boat when i clicked this shot and it went real close to this bird, the bird was about 10-15 feet away.
