[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was heavily raining in mudumalai forest, we ware waiting for the rain to stop and jungle safari. My wife was quite up sate and I was just testing my camera in low light and scanning the surrounding the forest through my 500mm lens at safari check post. At that time I saw this wet spotted dove was preening in funny posture. Also one thing can be notice the lighting was unnatural (at least I never got this type of lighting before,I have increased the tempo lil bit in PP) may be coz of rainy seasons.

Hope you guys would love this image.

That's a lucky catch in action.Nice detailes. BG is dark but it is dramatic. Closed eye improves the intensity of focus on the subject.
