[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Let me take you to the wonderful Rangana Thittu. Here is a typical scene from Rangana Thittu Bird Santuary. During the season, which is now, thousands of birds come to Rangane Thittu to lay eggs, raise their chicks and fly back to their home town with the family. You have a unique opportunity to take pictures of the birds very close from the water surface. This presents innumerable Photographic opportunities.

I shot this picture at 9:00 a.m. I thought of sharing this with you to show the environment at Rangana Thittu. In this picture you find a stork waiting to drink water, another stork taking flight leaving a tell-tale water pattern in the picture. You also find a Night Heron landing at the same time.

Trust you like it.
