[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this bird at Sunset Dam, in Lower Sabie, Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Sorry, I have deleted my NOTE; but soon I will add.
I made a correction here about the bird. It's a White Crowned Lapwing, but thought and added NOTE thinking this species as African Wattled Lapwing.

Bonjour Srikumar,
C'est très beau, finement détaillé et délicatement coloré dans une très belle lumière.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Sri,
Beautiful photo. The exposure's fantastic, there are details on both blacks and whites, and on the whole plumage. Composition's second to none, as well as PoV to show this beautiful bird from the best perspective. Great shallow depth also. A very pleasant image overall, the 'photo of the day' to me. Bravo!
Best regards, László
PS: thanks for your detailed critique on my last post. Appreciated.

Hello Srikumar,
Can't find anything negative about this shot, perfect in every aspect. I would be thrilled to capture such an impressive image.
The focus is razor sharp, allowing us to view it in exceptional detail and beautiful color. Composition is excellent and the exposure is right on the money, especially evident in the white areas of it's plumage. Awesome!!
