Wow Rathika, these are pristine, the combo obviously works very well!
The mating image of the Green bee eaters is awesome, beautiful composition!

These are so good, I think I'm gonna sell my 300f4.....:redface:


Would you mind sharing how you archive such results?

I guess you use tripod, or handheld? What shutterspeed / f-stop?

Excellent, Rathika! I will have to show my husband the Indian Robin. He couldn't believe how small the European Robin are when I showed him a picture of one. Keep them coming!

Beautiful images! The colors and detail in the first one are great. It's so wonderful to see such fantastic images of birds I will probably never see in real life.

1/90s ?

Amazging. How did you glue them to the tree? I've sparrow shots that are blurred even at 1/320s because those critters are always constantly fidgeting.

Rathika,
Beautifully rendered photos. I know it may seem odd but I was impressed on the sharpness of the crows and bee eaters despite the bright white background. My D80 would have blown out the sky unless I used a lot of -ev in spot metering mode. Did you use a neutral density filter to control the high contrast environment?

Thanks for Sharing,
