[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My first bird picture taken at recent Ranganna Thittu trip along with Murali, Goutham and others.

We waited for long time for Mom to get us fish the chicks seem to be saying to each other and she came back empty !

Better luck next time to capture feeding moments. However I liked to share this snap.
I used Nikon F-401s film camera (iso200) set to auto mode shutter and apperture, 70-300 sigma lens. The picture was taken handheld from a boat.

With best Regards.vab.

Hi Amar,
This is beautifully composed, i like the 2 chicks peeping looking in from behind the rocks. The catchlight in the eye is lovely.

Yes, we have seen this Tern family through the posts of Goutham a few days ago, Amar.
You have done a good job with your film camera here and the scan is equally good.

Hi Amar
Nice compo, but chicks are hiding. If i am right focus is on Chicks! No problem. you can try again to get best shot!


As discussed in person, this is very good. Shows the relationship between the mother and the chicks.

A great POV of this tern, Amar.
I like the look in her eyes.
The two chicks are so cute.
A little bright on the rock in the FG.
Nice composition.
TFS. : )
