This is one of the highest flying ducks of the world. During migration they have records of attaining heights close to 8000 metres. They are regular winter visitors in mostly the northern and north-eastern parts of India. They are indeed beautiful looking ducks and a lovely subject to photograph. 

Shot with Nikon gears.

1 / 2500 s

f / 7.1

ISO 640

Thanks for the stop.

Wonderful color palette an excellent light. The wing position, composition, and background are quite pleasing.

Biru, Beautiful Goose. Like the other Geese in the frame to show perspective.
