I have taken about a month's time to take these pictures of nesting lineated barbet from National Botanic Garden, Dhaka.
Every morning i used to go at 6am to 7am to the place and i am to wait 4 to 5 hours for perfect moment. It was challenging for me because of extreme hit weather condition during the of Ramadan. Sun light is the main criteria for the nature photography and cloudy weather is not favorable for bird's picture this is why i am to adjust the light and time for taking these pictures.
Exposure difficult to adjust for this type of pictures because the baby bird generally lives in the shade and mother remain in the light. Another problem is focus because it is difficult to perfect focus on mother and baby bird at the same time. To take snap of bird's nest some rules are to be followed such as you are to remain far way from the nest and no noise complete silence are to be maintained because mother bird feels frightened and goes away from the nest.
