Default Shikra

Some time back, I had posted pictures of another bird of this kind. The difference this time is this is much smaller, and with red eyes - on browsing the internet, I learnt that the males of shikra have red irises, and are generally smaller than females which have yellow eyes. The first one was taken at 10MP and the second, at 2MP setting in order to increase zoom - the bird was at least 40-50 feet away.





Hope you like these. C&C most welcome.
