Little Pied Flycatcher, Assam, India

One of the closer bird encounters I had during my time in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh in India was with this female Little Pied Flycatcher (Ficedula westermanni).    Many of the birds that I saw were wary of getting too close and hence were a challenge to photograph.  In this case, I was walking along a trail when this bird alighted on a twig quite close by seemingly unconcerned.    I was careful not to make any sudden movements so as to spook her,  and simply raised the camera/lens and fired off the shot.

Interesting to see the amount of detail you can capture with the current technology.    Check out the small flower suspended by a single thread of spider’s web!
