[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was shot from the car and what I liked is the reflection that I managed to get here.
Key to reflection shots is still water and an undisturbed bird :-)
These birds usually remain still for a while, sensing the water / ground for some vibration / movement, as a nature photographer its very important for us to understand the behavior of these animals prior to shooting.

Goutham, I really thought to be a twins and then realise the virtual mirror image. Your frame was in such a kind of composition making the picture looks real. Excellent sharpness. Ganesh

Hello Goutham,
A very fine picture, light management and composition are well chosen.
Very charming twins, indeed. I especially like the subtle colors of this shot.
I'm looking forward to see you in my country. You will surely tell it to me before.
Kind regards

Hello Goutham,
excellent presentation, poetically seen and artistically well presented. I love the composition's straight simplicity, the utmoost reduction, the surprisingly uniform reflection of light from an overcast sky in the totally calm water. Shot from the car ...
My congratulations!
With thanks, and best regards,

Hello Goutham,
Amazing shot with unique mirror image & perfect framing. TFS
