Getting refreshed after a plunge
Landing into the Bathing Point with pointed beak and shrewd eyes…!
In the hot summer time of South India,the Greater Couccal which is also described as the Bird of Fortunes in the legends of India, came to the pool to have a bath in detail…The first plunge into the pool was over and the bird stood steady ahead with the eyes looking sharper ….and the feet shaking for a moment ….
So vigilant that nobody should hurt the bathing moments…
After a prolonged dip, it got out of the pool in power and stared the surroundings in more vigilance!

When bathing was over, the Bird of Fortune of the Legends ,with the wet body and a cool head ,made a look ahead in search of the Mate…!

Depicted here are the postures of Indian Pond Herons during the forenoon and afternoon in my Canon 500D with its prime lens. I would like to describe these images rather portraits of the bird than mere bird-images..!
