[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
I have captured this male'White-Bellied Sunbird' (Cynniris talatala) in Kruger National Park, early in the morning when me and my wife were walking around in camping area. I was lucky to get such bit reddish golden hour early morning light but it wasn't an easy shot due to low light as well as this restless bird. I don't use flash (I don't have) because I know how it feels when someone use flash in front of my eyes! so used high ISO.

I don't like any obstacle behind head and here I was lucky and timing was good even in such bush area.

Hello Srikumar,
An outstanding photo of this gorgeous White-bellied Sunbird. The front half of its body is quite similar to the Palestine sunbird as far as plumage color, but the lower portion is completely different.
Wonderful eye contact with a bit of catchlight visible. Lovely iridescent colors and attractively composed.

Very nice and natural picture Srikumar! You did an excellent control of the light! Very natural colors, sharpness and perfect deep of field.

Hi Srikumar,

The branches are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the White-Bellied Sunbird. The good luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.
