[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
here's an interesting bird whose name means Hammer head (the reason for which can be seen in this photo). The neck is actually quite long, but is bent in an S-shape in this photo. The Hammerkops build huge nests (around 1.5 m deep) up in the trees and abandon them frquently to build another one. The abandoned nests are used by other animals such as owls, snakes, bees, genets, or lizards making the would-be Hammerkops predators think twice before looking into these nests!

Hi Sitthivet,

Good DOF, sharpness and I especially like the composition. A polarizing filter would have taken some of the glare of the water.
