    Wonderfull capture, Krishna. Like the foraging for food, wet lower legs, and excellent low POV. Nice how the foreground soft brown band, and the distant possible brown shoreline frame the Avocet.

    Great pose, beautiful light; nicely exposed Avocet popping against the lovely graded BG.

    Excellent low angle, and the feeding posture is rather dynamic. Fun to get down and dirty for shorebirds eh! I'm just missing a catchlight in the eye.
