Hello Mr.,

Hello Srikumar,
Nice close-up,excellent details and lovely colours.

Hello Srikumar.
Another splendid photo. Great focus and details.

It's a difficult picture because it is against the light. Thus still more worthwhile.
Have a nice day.

Hello Srikumar,

This is a very beautiful photo of the heron, different that one that I see here, I love the beautiful golden brown of the plumage that that velvety white of the belly. Lovely composition with good quality, sharpness, clarity, natural color and light.
