I see this bird everyday and I just ignore it since they are too many to see and may be when humans have destroyed them all then I would pay attention. No! Then I have taken the photograph of this bird in a summer afternoon. The intensity of colours may be uncontrollable and maybe too vibrant and warm but that’s what I want to do.
Taking bird photographs is not all about the perfection of the light conditions and all but it is about portraying what kind of environment and habitat they are in living with other animals. At this area, there are a lot of Carabaos (Water Buffalos) and they are found almost everyday right beside these bovines or on top of them, following where ever they go. So, taking a photgraph may be easy, but this bird is also shy as big and visible as they are. The white feathers is also a challenge and can be difficult to expose.
