One of the most difficult subjects to get, after many years, was lucky to get one in Dec 2018. Easily my most prized catch of year 2018.
A vulnerable species.

Wow Clement, talk about a great shot of a rare bird! I would love to just see this one, let alone get a photo like this. Congrats!

Now, how about a Great Indian Bustard?
