The Jungle Babbler The Jungle Babbler by Sudipto Sarkar is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License. Another cool bird I photographed during my cousin’s wedding. That place has all kinds of birds, probably because of all the greenery and paddy fields, mustard fields and sugarcane fields… I have recently decided to post birds with their common names (will take more research than usual, but it’s worth it). This one’s a Jungle Babbler. And although the Wikipedia article does state that they stick in groups of 7 (and are thus called the ‘Seven brothers’), I only saw three. The others were hiding behind leaves and this individual was the only one in my direct line of sight at the time. Turns out, they don’t actually babble. 😀 EXIF Info Exposure f/5.6 1/400 sec ISO 100 Focal Length in 35mm 450 Date taken 2017:03:13 14:02:44 Camera NIKON D3200 Spread the love Tweet Post navigation The blue throated barbetHappy and content 4 Comments Great use of light that outlines the bird in a "halo" of light here!! Reply Thank you Steve… 🙂 I got lucky… 🙂 Reply love your image, Sudipto. i have never tried "shooting" birds and would not know how to begin! Reply Thanks Ayush… And well, for starters, you'll need a telephoto (the longer the better) and some patience. And please never get a manual focus one… I spend more time focusing than clicking with mine… 😀 Wait… You meant "shooting" with a camera right? 😀 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
