This image was taken while returning from Bhimashankar after a very rewarding birding trip.The light was harsh & it was tough to balance.There was a little fire lit on the roadside to burn the brush & the escaping insects had attracted these drongos's. This one is a jeuvinile.Shot from the car.

Hi Badruddin

This dark bird is fittingly edged and enhanced by the well removed and out of focus BG. Although some details are lost in the shaded areas on the back of the bird one can still see enough of its face and frontal features. Those big black eyes looking directly at you and making positive eye contact.

Well done and TFS.
