My first Shikra sighting in J P Nagar
Bangalore Bengaluru, I have never seen this bird inside the city limits before.
This evening, I was walking along and it was nearly 7 pm, and what do I see but this handsome bird sitting on the railing of the Mini Forest that abuts my home!
It was lucky and unlucky that I had my S3 with me; lucky because I had any camera at all, and unlucky because the S3 is not the best camera either for low-light situations or for bird photography… I wish it had been the Canon with the prime lens! Also, it was really low light…
But the bird didn’t fly too far, and these are the shots that I managed:
I am hoping that this bird will be around, and I can photograph it with a better camera in better light!
I posted this collage on INW too, and got a fantastic comment from someone who had this to say:
“good picture…could make out it is a kannada bird easily by seeing the board.”
