Oriental Darter preening


Great detail. Looks like an Anhinga. We get tons of those. I also always like the unusual poses or action shots. Maybe a little more space on the bottom, but that’s being VERY picky.

Like to see this one in black and white. The elements for a good black and white seem to be there.

Superb background colors to match the colors of the bird. Awesome and unusual pose with great eye contact. The pumage has really good detail as well. Maybe just a little more room all around but that is the tiniest of nits. Beautiful capture Jagdeep!

Wow, what a great photo. The lines and gesture of the bird are superb. :+1:

This is very nicely done, Jagdeep. Since it’s quite a oddly shaped bird, the few times I have seen the bird, I found it difficult to portray it in a nice way. This pose nailed it ! Not sure of you have it, but a bit more space around the bird would be welcome, but other than that a very nice shot ! Cheers, Hans

Hi J Rajput
Thank you for posting a bird I will probable never see in the wild. The detail, coloring and framing are great. Nice work.

Great pose, Jagdeep. Darters/Anhingas are one of my favorites. The pose is ideal for the interesting physique of these birds and image quality is first rate. You can’t beat that lovely golden background.
