[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was an experiment in photographing with harsh back light condition. Here I used +2 exposure bias in order to properly expose the bird, tree branch and leaves. Thus the highlights were blown out (purposefully). This helped to bring a small high key like effect to the picture.

Indian Pond Heron (Ardeola grayii) is a commonly seen heron, and is also known as paddybird. They are often seen in paddy fields.
Taken from Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, Thattekkad.
