[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Lesser Adjutant (Leptoptilos javanicus) is a large wading bird in the stork family Ciconiidae. Like other members of its genus, it has a bare neck and head. It is however more closely associated with wetland habitats where it is solitary and is less likely to scavenge than the related Greater Adjutant. It is a widespread species found from India through Southeast Asia to Java.

I find the expression on the face of this large bird quite funny, Joydeb. It seems to be smiling at something.
Well managed image against a flat white BG.

Hi Joy,

Perfect point of view. Really interesting bird. Excellent presentation and composition.

Hello Joy,
Now this guy looks like he is King of the mountain. It has a rather agressive appearance with it,s large stout bill and menacing eyes. I must admit the wild hair style adds to the look.
You have captured it perfectly in what looks to be very sunny lighting. Exceptional focus and beautiful natural colors. Well done!!
