Beautiful bird. Exciting to see it here.

I would recommend to crop in tighter on the bird so it is the main subject in the picture.


Keep 'em flying,

Lovely shot! I second the sentiment that a tighter crop would make the bird stand out much better.

By the way, what does BNP send for? I would guess something National Park?

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

This is White-breasted or Smyrna Kingfisher presumably in Bharatpur National Park in the Rajasthan region of n India, where they are very common. My preferred common name 'Smyrna' Kingfisher comes from the Latin for the species which is Halcyon smyrnensis...:-)
