    Btw tell us how you captured this night pic? (it says ISO 100 and 1/30...I thought you needed a higher ISO and a slower shutter for these kind of pictures...)

  5. Thanks for your lovely comments everyone!

    Good to see you back mate! how are you doing?

    It should be, I think you know the

    Yes, but they look prettier than I thought … :P

    No, this is not a night pic. I took this around 1 p.m :D

    @Patali & MD,
    First of all thousand apologies for incomplete exif! I forgot to include 2 more info in it :D
    Flash : On
    Exposure compensation : -2

    I used higher ISO and it gave too much of noise in the pic (it was just before a heavy rain and also we were deep in the forest as well). Since I was bit far away from the subject I thought to use the flash without disturbing the birds. So that’s how I managed to get a decent pic at a lower ISO and a slow shutter speed. Hope you get what I’m trying to say here …. =:D

    Ahh !! I forgot to mention the pint of blood that I donated to my leech friends too … :D

  6. Nice capture, Anjana.
    Was this taken when I met you at S'raja?
