Painted storks (Mycteria leucocephala) at the pulicat bird sanctuary near Chennai. The Pulicat Bird Sanctuary is a large brackish lake on the south-east coast of India. It is an important wintering ground for several species of ducks and waders (inclduing huge flocks of flamigos), albeit in a significantly human dominated area.

Hello Ravi,
Though I have been to Goa twice I have never seen the Painted Stork. You have made a fine capture with good sharpness that would take a closer crop. I would loved to have taken a shot like this!
So thanks for sharing this one.
Best wishes, Ivan

Hi Ravi,
A nice shot on this three Painted Storks in flight. Action is frozen well with nice detail in the birds. Sounds like a great place for nature photography.

Hi Ravi,
A nice capture but a little more cropping will do better. Thanks a lot for sharing. :D later
