[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this picture of 'Pied Avocet' at Marievale Bird Sanctuary. It was bit cloudy day but got quite well light at the time of taking this picture. The color of the bird looks very nice but difficult to maintain proper exposure. But I was lucky Sunlight wasn't such harsh.
It was a windy day and you can see waves on the water surface.
