[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Dwarka town in Gujarat is dotted with a number of temples and each one of them carries several myths and believes. This small town is situated on the Saurashtra Coast at the point where The Gomati river merges with the Arabian Sea. The holy aura, here is fused with religious magic, which enforce visitors create an emotional touch with each corner of it. And of the several mythic believes, one ultimate reality is the bewitching Bet Dwarka Beach, which remains crowded with pilgrims all the year round. Either with the mood of picnicking or with the thought of taking a holy deep, the beach has become a must-visit center, over a few years.

More than temples, one would appreciate the beautiful avian wildlife here. I could see the spoonbills, domicile Cranes & Rosy Pelicans in majority apart from many kinds of ducks.

I dedicate this photograph to Ramthakur.

Hallo Subhash
This is a great shot! Makes me wonder how so many birds can get together in one place and get along! It almost looks like a family reunion. I like the blurred background and the different poses of the birds, as well as their reflections in the water. Thanks for sharing this image as part of a dedication to Ram one of our older stalwarts on the site. Best regards.
