This is one of the most widespread species found in India during the winters. The lovely overall saffron colour make them easily identifiable from quite a distance. Ironically the national flag of India bears three colours; saffron, white and green and all these three colours are found in them.

Nice light, colors, perspective. I could see cleaning up the water just a bit, but it's great as-is even if you don't.
