[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A little egret from the Kanha National Park in central India. This one was overlooking a nala (a small stream) which was filled with wildlife (various wading birds, langurs, Gair, Sambhar, Barking deer, Spotted deer......) all quenching their thirst in the seering mid-day heat (40c+ temperatures) in the summer.

very nice shot, cheer

Hello Ravi,
Indian National Parks must be very beautiful! It would be so exotic to me to visit them :) This is a nice capture of this elegant bird with good composition, control on exposure, details and POV. This blurred BG suits your little subject well. Thanks!
