Crab plovers (Adult and Juvenile)
was a beautiful evening when it was virtually impossible to seperate the horizon from the sky the low tide had begun and i was trying to stalk a grey heron to get it with its reflection, while shooting it i heard a diffrent kind of call which i had never heard before, an adult crab plover and a juvenile were flying by, i had the Nikon D40 with the Sigma 170-500 dg lens on it, (Darn!!! - the autofocus would not work as the D40 doesnot have a motor and same goes with the sigma 170-500) somehow luck was on my side and i managed to focus on these beautiful birds as they came close.

misty dawn at khijadiya

As we reached khijadiya we could hear
the cranes calling nearby but could not see them,
the blessing in disguise was that we got to experience
the beauty of a misty morning at the beautiful lake
as the light reached us after being filtered through the mist.
It was one of the most memorable mornings of our lives.
Thanks to the sigma 50-500mm lens we could shoot the
landscape without changing the lens,
knowing that if a bird came flying by, all that was needed
to capture it was the twist of the zoom ring.
