Shoot details
My focus on photographing birds took me to various parts of India. A fascinating journey! On my maiden visit outside Karnataka, I was delighted to see and photograph this wonderful small winter visitor! An experience that made me realize that it is possible to photograph small birds without finding their nests :-)

Species details
The pretty Bluethroat is a non-breeding migrant to India.  Usually found in wet and damp places, this robin is widespread in winter. The 15cm male is shown here. Females are drab in comparison and lack the blue throat.
