CommentAn inquisitive Little Shrike-thrush making an early morning foray for a drink and a quick bath. Note the worn feathers on this bird, particularly the abdominal feathers. The smooth bokeh has been attained by ensuring no objects are close to and immediately behind the field of view, which was a grassy field.
