  3. Fantastic, what a capture. This bird is a real beauty. Full of colour!!

  4. Thanks for your lovely comment all!

    They are very friendly and it allows you to approach very close to them (but supper fast movers won’t stay steady even for a sec). There are few of them who are regular visitors of my garden. Maybe that’s why it didn’t click me to photograph them until last week … lol

    PS: since the gloomy weather, I had to go for a higher ISO (more noise in the pic) to get faster shutter speed. But I would love to get some quality shots of them when the sun comes out. =D

  5. Great capture ! I know how hard it is to catch these guys :)
    I dont see much graininess here anyway. Its quite clear and detailed.
    saththunta kathakarana rahasa kiyanawada nadda? :P

  6. Hi Silent,

    Thanks for your lovely comment.

    Yes, it’s not easy! But remember to set “AI Servo AF” while shooting moving subjects.

    එහෙම රහස් ප්‍රසිද්දියේ කියන්න බැහැ! අනික නැවේ ටික කාලයක් වැඩ කරන්නත් ඕනේ :P
