[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Well, April the first was not too bad either. There is a tank sized lake - Yeongildae on the hilltop, three minutes away, from my residence. After the snow cover was lifted the lake water is bristling with aquatic life.

Fishes were plentiful & always dashed for shorelines - whenever a benefactor made some offerings in kind, mostly crispy (Fishy?) snack.

This heron was aiming at the little fries that were spawned after this frenzied feeding of friendly cookies, by their parents.

Mostly, it would sit back Idyllically, but at times, probably whenever a fry is sighted, straighten-Up & dip its bill into the water. The fries are much too small, so a Head-Shake was necessary to shake off excess undesired water that came from the clamp down.

Hello Subhayan,

The colours look nice and natural, sharpness is decent but I think it could be some better, and exposer are also decent, a bit over exposed in the white i the head, not muck but visible.
