I have captured this picture of 'Greater Flamingo' at Marievale Bird Sanctuary. It was a cloudy day but that moment received bit sunlight. We saw so many birds there at a time and just wanted to take a closer shot of its facial beauty.

Hello Srikumar,
It would be hard to improve on a shot like this, technically perfect. Good idea to show a closeup of just the facial area, in a full body image you would miss all the wonderful detail. I like the way you can see completely through the nostril cavity in its bill. Awesome eye contact and just the right amount of exposure. The water droplets are the icing on the cake!!

Ciao Srikumar, great portrait of lovely flamingo with fantastic drops, splendid light, fine details, excellent sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Srikumar
This is a great portrait, of course, with magnificent details.
The water drop in the end of its beak is a nice detail.
