  2. I love when new members join from other countries and post their bird shots. It gives me a chance to see things I wouldn't otherwise ever see. These shots are all very nice. I especially like the middle two for their uniqueness. The backgrounds on the last 3 are especially nice too. Glad you've joined us and look forward to more posts of yours!
  3. Thats a grand entry !

    Lovely captures all of them.

    Would be interested in the tech details if possible.

  4. Wonderful series, exellent photos. Looking forward to more and details on how you achieve such excellence.

    Great first post Rathika (is that the proper name to call you??). I agree with Kevin. Seeing images of birds and animals from other countries is one of the great benefits of a forum that has members all around the world.

    Let us see more, please. :wink:
  10. Hi Rathika, great series and like them all. Welcome to the board, I see your pics are going to be a hit around here, very interesting species. Luv the detail in your pelican shot, tough to do on a white bird. Nicely done, look forward to seeing more :smile:

    The bee-eater and kingfisher shots are particularly beautiful. It's great to have members from around the world - so many new birds!
