Well focused and balanced contrasts.
Notes are brief ... excellent.

Hallo Biplab
This is a great image, filled with lots of beautiful, bright colours. The natural sunlight in the image is gorgeous. I very much like the red beaks and eyes. I like the way you captured the movement of the water. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

excellent shot.
