Bird Hunting – Five little Egrets
The last weekend of august i got a rare three days off from the work therefore a chance to go to my home (Jaffna) after a 3 months of continuous work. There, my first aim was refresh my taste buds with the mom’s freshly cooked plates and I already had other plans for my 600D that was the bird Hunting.
I Know few places where we can see various kinds of birds usually in the rainy season. Even though August is a very sunny and a hot season in jaffna with less water in those Ponds, I went to one of those ponds to snap some birds.
That pond called As “pullukulam” situated behind the university hostel i stayed during my college days. during those days every morning and evening i used to watch them playing and bathing in the water, so i went there in the evening 3pm. Sad thing is the pond is almost empty and little amount of water remaining in it.
I was searching for a dynamic bird shot but The birds were resting in the pond, not with the same mood i have seen them in the past. they remained static and bit boring.
Suddenly my eyes had struck at this group of little egrets, bcoz of their position and the nice reflection appeared in the water. I love the arrangement of these five egrets and I made the image bit interesting by tuning the white balance a bit.
I found another cutie but unfortunately not with in the good range of 250mm. i couldn’t get closer to have a good detail of this bird.
Thats all, I was able to post only three images i took in that pond, my first adventure of bird photography with canon 600d + 250mm. This time the season was not suitable to catch some beautiful birds. Awaiting for the rainy season.
