Wonderful shot Himadri. Brilliant timing and love the hop/step moment you have captured. The large view also highlights those lovely colours lying just below the water level.
Make your life spectacular!

Always good to see these most beautiful ducks - and this is a terrific action capture, Himadri!

Haven't seen one in flight of the species ...

One of my favourite images taken by you, Himadri. It almost appears that he (?), is running across the water, and the accompanying spray, adds to that illusion. Excellent wing position, and nice colours on the head, as well. A pleasure to view !

Very nice takeoff shot. I like the rainbow colours in the water, presumably from the water plants.

The spray of water and speeding duck are marvellous. Wonderful colors too. Congratulations!

Great catch of the action! A handsome duck and a very nice BG.

Great looking image. The head iridescence is really beautiful and the running action of the take off is perfectly timed.
