My egrets and herons are gone for the winter, replaced by these...things.

these are quite nice...the detail in the second one is stellar!

Stunning, and yes, stellar detail.

Thanks!

I live in India, at the foothills of the Himalayan mountains to be more precise. The birds I click are all out in the wild as I am lucky to have ready access to nearby forest areas which witness a lot of migration activity.

In any event, ever since I started shooting birds, I was surprised as to how many of them are there out in the wild - even parks and wastelands - It's a classic case of - the more I see, the more I see.

Cheers ... J.R.
