[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The photo shoot plan by my colleagues (Ariben and LSP are already TE and TL members) led us to Lotus Pond in Banjara Hills. I made it for the evening session, it was a most beautiful shoot session and a wonderful place, serene and quiet.

I dedicate, this photo to LSP, and thank him for encouraging me to take such long distance shots with my basic camera with a 4 X optical and 16 x digital zoom. I would have never attempted this unless he told me to. The bird were pretty far out in the water.

Hi Sreya,
you presented us with a lovely natural ponds with ducks realxing. I like the calmness of this place and the green grasses it has around its banks. Looks like it near to a hill.
Lovely presentation.

Hello Sreya,
A nice well-composed tranquil pond scene with a group of Lesser Whistling Ducks as the focal point. Nice lighting and colours too but personally I prefer the presentation without the inner frame, which I find disturbing.
Thanks and best regards,
