Namaste Subhendu. Your bird photos have aroused my interest as I do love birds. This composition is particularly elegant in its limited palette and delicate shapes. Very nice. Regards. Klaudio.

These birds are very common in my country and it's always a pleasant sign of spring to see them the first times after they have returned from their winter quarters in Africa or maybe India. This is a very nice composition with a diagonal emphasis and great reflections.

Nice view of the white wagtail also known as 'Khanjana' in Bengali. There is a common saying in Bengali that winter does not arrive in Bengal till these birds arrive over here from Europe. I like the perfect mirror reflection you have captured of this bird. I also like the by default sepia colour tone of this photo. Nice one. Thanks for sharing.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. L'oiseau est bien placé dans l'image. Il est d'une grande netteté malgré le temps gris. J'aime beaucoup l'impression qu'il donne de se regarder dans un miroir.

Yes beautiful he is, and the Narcissus moment is excellently captured. The tone is special... so compatible to the color of the cute one itself. Wonderful presentation of a superb shot.

Bonsoir, cher Subhendu,
Miroir, mon bon miroir quel est le plus beau ! Nous avons l'impression que l'oiseau se pose la question.
Image fort bien cadrée.
Très bonne soirée.

Another lovely bird image from you.Quite a close up in the waters.Just a wee bit more sharpness could have done wonders to this image but then you shot at 300mm on a 70/300.Lovely piece of work.TFS.

a very charming picture, wisely composed so that balance, simplicity and chromatic subtlety exalt the delightful impact of the scene. I like very much the chromatic harmony, the fine definition on the bird and the reflected grass blades, the texture of the water. There's an intriguing sense of fragility, the duration of the scene seems so precarious. Lovely work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
