Just like a painting! The wingtips just gently touch the water.

Himadri, the pose, with wingtips barely touching the water, is amazing. And the light is magical. Super image.

A beautiful capture of this handsome drake, Himadri! Perfect timing to catch his wing tips brushing the surface of the water in sweet light.
