[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this pair of Egyptian Goose at Sunset Dam, in Kruger National Park. We were little bit late and couldn't cherish the beauty of Sunrise. But saw so many animals along with water birds. I like the situation of light on water. Clear blue sky's effect on water helped me to get such blue BG. Sunset Dam is one of my best place where I would like to sit long to watch animal activity.

The Egyptian Goose (Alopochen aegyptiacus) is a member of the family Anatidae. It is native to Africa; South of the Sahara and the Nile valley.

Hello Srikumar,
You have presented these beautiful Egyptian Geese in wonderful lighting. The rich colors in their plumages is easily seen in nice detail. They have lovely markings and unique facial features. The bright blue water is an added bonus to an already attractive image.

Hi Srikumar,

The birds are well placed in the frame. The point of view is shpwing the details of the Egyptian Goose. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.
