Hi all,

This is a bird which i saw for the first time in my life when I visited "Ganesh Gudi" camp of Jungle lodges in the midst of Western ghats, India.

The light was not all that great and i had to push the ISO to 800, to get this shot.

The Black-naped Monarch or Black-naped Blue Flycatcher (Hypothymis azurea) is a slim and agile passerine bird belonging to the family of monarch flycatchers. They are sexually dimorphic with males having a distinctive black patch on the back of the head and a narrow black half collar ("necklace") while the female is duller and lacks the black markings. They have a call that is similar to that of the Asian Paradise Flycatcher and in tropical forest habitats pairs may join mixed-species foraging flocks. Populations differ slightly in plumage colour and sizes.

Hello Goutham,
Remarkable photo of this Black-naped Monarch. Beautiful clear colours in great sharpness and details. Taken from a very good POV in a fine composition.

I get a lot of noise at ISO 800, Goutham!
On the other hand, you have done a fantastic job with it. This blue bird is a new species for me and it is really beautiful. Black nape is just discernible from your perspective. The curved branch for a perch adds beauty to the composition.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Goutham
Very well captured image with perfect colour, nice sharpness also.
Best wishes,

Hello Goutham,
What a cute little bird. I never had seen it before. Love the "generous" composition according place to the background, and the play of blue and green color. Well done as usual.
Kind regards

Ciao Goutham, lovely bird on beautiful blurry BG, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Goutham,
