Awesome portrait with nice clean bg and raised foot adds interest too, Himadri!
If anything I won't mind seeing a little more of it's right foot though.

Himadri, Superb foreground and background highlighting the Curlew. Detail is excellent. Agree about the foot, but if every image was perfect, there wouldn't be a reason to go back.

Excellent low-angle and pose, with raised foot, and super eye contact, Himadri. Also, beautiful image quality and background. Very nice image!

Love the raised foot and that amazing eye, giving you that "look". Interesting bird.

Nice shot with a good one leg stand. The bird was keeping eye on you :-)
