[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi friends,
After a brief gap, this is for your good taste in the field of 'Lens & Eye'.
This is a Median Egret, a common bird you can see at any pond/pool, busy catching aquatic food stuff! but if you keep tracking it's activities it is sure you will put some marvelous stuff in to your hungry black box for light! I hope there is no need to explain more about the bird, as every bird watcher/lover know about this beautiful snow white bird!
As morning light was warm enough the snow white is not exactly looking snow white, but adding a dramatic look I hope you will agree!

Hi Ananth

nice capture and a good moment to catch it!
I like the dark BG and the sharpness of the image.
I just think that the color of the egret is a bit unreal... (correct me if I'm worng;)), so I did a WS
TFS regards;


Hi Ananth,

Nice capture, a little brightness would have made it more interesting... I liked the pose of the bird....it reminds me of those days when we used to go to the gandhi beach in chennai when we were kids and enjoy the waves...

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Ananth,

Even though I to am irregular on TN these days nice to see back in action. You have got the egret flight well breezed but the colours very pale, perhaps it needs more brightness.

Well captured very good moment
