Birds of various species enjoy the dipping sun at their waterhole in Nandankanan Zoo in Bhubaneshwar, Orissa.
Nandankanan Zoo is one of those zoos which is different. The authorities take pains to ensure that animals live with dignity.
Nandankanan Zoological Park is a 400-hectare (990-acre) zoo and botanical garden in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India. Established in 1960, it was opened to the public in 1979 and became the first zoo in India to join World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) in 2009. It also contains a botanical garden and part of it has been declared a sanctuary. Nandankanan, literally meaning The Garden of Heavens, is located near the capital city, Bhubaneswar, in the environs of the Chandaka forest, and includes the 134-acre (54 ha) Kanjia lake.
A major upgrade was done in 2000 (after the damage caused by the super-cyclone of 1999 in coastal Odisha). More than 2 million visitors visit Nandankanan every year

You have managed the backlight reasonably well to produce an interesting composition. There are quite a few species to be seen here and all in good detail.

Nice view of the uniformly algae covered pond. A fine shot from the zoo. Like the birds scattered all over the frame. The sun rays creeping over the trees makes this image atmospheric. Nice one, thanks for sharing.
