Indian Robin is such a common bird around the neighborhood. And yet I hardly ever managed a decent picture. I know this one is a F5.6 picture and gives no clue about the habitat but then this one was sitting on a boundary wall and the background is of a wall of a house.
I have noticed that I am shooting much more in the manual mode these days. When a bird is kind enough to pose for a longer period of time, I switch to an auto mode to click a quick picture. Earlier it was the other way round!
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
