Hello! Good morning!
Today's upload is that of a bird and it's my first time trying to take some bird shoots ... getting inspired by all the lovely bird shoots displayed in the EPZ galleries! However, I admit it was not a very successful venture ... managed to get only 2/3 good ones (and it's just my personal opinion). Suggestions on taking bird shoots .. most welcome.

Also, I thank you all for your lovely comments and suggestions on my earlier uploads.
with best regards.
Rani

Good bird portrait. On my screen it has a pale overtone - perhaps needs a bit more contrast. A

The pale overtone is not there on my screen. Can it possibly be due to some difference in the screen type?
Sincere regards...... and questioningly,

Nice capture. Larger birds allow you a little more time & don't teleport out of the frame like garden birds, and the detail on their feathers makes a pleasing portrait. Focus on the eye(s) if you can, or else the head.
