Hi Abhirup,
Although a camouflage shot is never really spectacular, this one's quite good. You were lucky to see and photograph this nocturnal bird at daytime. Nice textures on the plumage.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Abhirup,well camouflated but not for you as i can see,a great capture of this rare guest of TN,in a curious moment and top quality,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Abhirup,
Rare species and quite well captured. Good details and colors. Bit soft hind portion. Don't know what camera settings you are using. But I think 'A' mode will works well here, mainly where you could control your f/stop. Here you need more depth. Shutter speed doesn't matter much.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice week,
