Hello Subhash

Beautiful photo of the Northern Shoveler,
with fine POV and i love that centered framing,
excellent focus sharpness and details,
i also love that one part of the bird is
in the highlights and the other part in the shadows,



Hi Subhash,
very interesting bird. Great reflections in water. Very good composition.
Have a nice day,

Superb capture of this bird in the mellow light, Subhash.
The water is so still the reflection is a mirror replica of the subject.
Well done and Merry Christmas!
