[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is not a recent picture. As I am now more busy to teach photography to some less privileged deaf students in Delhi, I failed to continue my regular trip in the wild or you can say I am now more domesticated like a pet – not free like these Brown-headed gulls. These gulls breed in Ladakh and a regular winter visitor to the inland and coasts in India. During fall winter the birds make a halt at Yamuna in Delhi may be to watch the pollution level of the Indian capital and to take an early resolution whether they will choose this place for a stopover in next season. And that’s why they are at a meeting with the local Black-winged Stilt.

Hello Parthasarathi,
Very fine capture of these Gulls in a row together with the little Stilt. Sharp details and fine reflections in the water. Pity about the Stilt being a bit cropped but I expect they were too close to you. Lovely natural colours too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hello Partha,
Very funny to see the diagonal line of gulls with their reflections in the water and coming from the other direction the fine waterbird on the left. Interesting composition and very fine colours, to which I'm always very attentive.
Thanks and best regards

Hi Parthada,
Excellent shot and you show a great perspective here. Great control of lighting and I like the mirror reflections very much. The Stilt unfortunately has its tail cut but the composition still is very impressive with a fine POV. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Parthasarathi,
A perfect capture of these beautiful birds and their mirror reflections on the water surface. Also Congratulate you that you uploaded your 100th posting with this great shot. A great milestone in TN!

Hi Parthasarathi,
Very goos capture of this extraordinary setting. Genaral Stilt is inspecting the troops. Good composition, sharp details and nice reflections on the water.

Witaj Parthasarathi.

Hi Partha, a wonderful shot of these beauties. TFS.

नमस्ते my friend,
I like this composition because it shows fine details.
Your notes re: Indian pollution.
Soooooooo very sad. India is BEAUTIFUL. Many nations have "raped" her in the past.
Today my beloved homeland is paying the price.
Mario with warm greetings from currently UNPOLUTTED Canada.
