How nice to see you back after more than three months. And with a photo of a Darter in fantastic light. Great contrasting dark BG. Very beautiful sharpness, pose and composition. Hope to see a lot more photos from you in the next weeks.

Hallo there stranger
How good it is to see a posting from you and what a beautiful one I might add. The detail on this Darters plumage is really lovely and so pleasant to look at, the neckline elegant and slender and pose very graceful. I like the shape of the dark tailpiece. It is striking. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

The pose, lighting POV and composition are perfect! The Bg and colours make this an attractive portrait of this Anhinga that is great to view.

Nice bird with a long neck lit with the slanted sun, more prominent in the blurred background. The placement of the bird on the dry branch like a cross is appealing too. The focus seems to have gone soft from bottom right to top left edge of the photograph, though. Overall a good composition.

This is a GORGEOUS bird, Smitha. And a fine capture of it. Love the bg, perfectly complementary to the colors of the bird. Nice detail on the feathers and branch - and the colors of the sun resting on its neck. Well done!

What a beautiful bird, Smitha!
Taken from a very effective point of view, the picture is lyrical in nature and a work of art. The colours suggest as if it were a painting.
Well done and TFS.

I remember seeing this elegant bird in India and your capture shows it at its very best in beautiful light. Excellent POV, wonderful sharp details and colours and a magic background!
TFS and all the best wishes, Ulla
