[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this Heron in our yard when it was sitting on a Mango tree looking at the pond.

The Indian Pond Heron(Ardeola grayii)is a small heron.It is of Old World Origins,breeding in southern Iran and east to India,Burma,Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.They are widespread and common but can be easily missed when they stalk prey at the edge of small water-bodies or even when they roost close to human habitations.

Scientific Classification:
Species:A.grayii(Sykes 1832)

Thanks for viewing....

Very well captured image.
Against light and blurry BG makes a dimensional effect. Sharpness is another good point here.
Yes the composition is also good.

Generally I do not like the compositions where the neutral space is exaggerated when meaningless. Not the case with this stunning work, where this Ardeola grayii seems to be a guardian of its ecological environment that allows us to enter the vibrant natural atmosphere around it and this little heron seems to admire reflexively ...

From Argentina, congratulates

Hello Srikumar

Compact cameras have always their place among photographers
specially when you can carry them in your pocket or belt case,
but with your new DSLR and viewing this photo now we can say
that you are in the Major Leagues of photography, this photo is your
best if not one of your best TN photos, love that warm light, and you
managed superbly your DSLR to obtain details of the wonderful plumage,
great POV and framing, TFS


Ciao Srikumar,
照的清晰 很漂亮的鳥
這張最有意境 看起來真是美
這光線幾乎完美 有著多重光線的變化
主題清亮孤傲的感覺 又像在沈思甚麼

My best wishes for the New Year!
