Focal Length:55mm
Shutter:1/5 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 550D

I love Mynahs, they are few birds that flock in pairs. I was strolling down my mothers building, when I spotted a lone birdy sitting all by itself on the parapet outside. It sure has some lovely and complimenting hues. Would’ve been better to get a shot when it’s in flight, you’d love the brown, black and white hued wings But for now, this is all I have. Hope you like it too!

  1. cats adore birds too, because they can fly…

  2. this is great. such expressive eyes! thanks for sharing.

  3. Beautiful picture. Here in South Africa they are considered a bit of a pest, but I think they are very clever.

  4. Yes, unfortunately I have to agree with “supersnails” – a pest here in South Africa… Nicely captured pic though!

  5. Wow… from my experience at taking photos of animals you usually get one good shot in 10, as they move a lot. Great photo!

  6. beautiful pic… seems you too use canon 550d as me 🙂 love this dslr. Many birds like mynahs, woodpeckers use to frequent the windows of my house… but pollution , rampant construction and insensitive nature of people these days make there sighting a rare occassion these days :(.. keep clicking.. started follwing your blog 🙂

    • thanks mugill…hope you’re having as much fun with the camera..So you from Delhi or Chennai…we have a lot in common then! hope you enjoy what I post!!
