[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The common Sandpiper (Actitis hypoleucos)is one of the winter visitors to the Indian subcontinent and a fairly frequent visitor on TN.

This one seen here is on the banks of a river, the shallow waters of which at this spot attract a large number of resident water birds as well as winter visitors. Though the numbers have dropped significantly due to water pollution.

Biraz netlik sorunu olmasına rağmen, kompozisyonun güzelliği ile bu pek farkedilmiyor.
Güzel çalışma.

Hello Himanshu
very stylish composition of a tree and a sandpiper. The dark eye really catch the viewwrs. I like the shadow that falls on the body of the bird.
Well presented shot.
