Photographer's Note

Dear friends,

I shoot it at the end of January, 2011 when I traveled in Benaras. It was winter season, cold and foggy weather, so the atmosphere was not clear actually not visible. We took a boat to shoot these migratory birds. They were searching foods and flying surrounded over the boats.

They are special type of migratory birds with over 100 known species and two prominent species including Gulls and Buntings have been coming to the city in the winter season for a long time now. They use the Ganga and its surroundings in the city as wintering ground and return to their original habitat after completing a long flight from cold regions near North Pole covering countries like Russia and China for autumn migration.

I got opportunity to shoot the beautiful moment.

all the best,

swapankumarroy
