[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Flight of fancy, certainly was entertaining as it promised to be with wide variety of birds and even mammals at MonteCasino, Johannesburg. Tried to catch this (I am not sure what it’s called, maybe you can suggest) with my sort zoom and panning. Though not very sharp but guess it’s a OK shot. Tried panning for the first time though.

Hello Anupam !
It is not easy to take pictures of lying birds ! I am not so good at it, either, all my pictures come out blurry. Here, I like the pose of the bird and the BG gives a sense of motion, turning this into a nice action shot. In rench, this bird is called "Toucan" but I don't know the name in English so I can't really help.
Greetings from Fance,

PS : Sorry, no points left for today...
