[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Well, this bird is a gray heron - and feeds primarily on fish or aquatic life - but is also an opportunist - given a chance it will secretively forage into any passerine nest! Shall talk about it later.

1 more stop increased Asbed, hope you will like it.

Hello Subhayan,
fine in-flight capture of this heron with good sharpness and a nice gliding pose.
Best wishes,

Hallo Subhayan
What a perfect example of grace is this Grey Heron in flight? What a beautiful image, with a peaceful feeling that surrounds it. You have captured its posture so beautifully, showing the details so well. The yellow eye displays so well against the blue sky as backdrop. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Subhayan,
Spectacular composition with excellent clarity and fine details. It is a interesting image taken from a very good POV. Very nice species of birds difficult to shoot because they are very shy at least in my country....
Thanks for sharing!
