Care to Say Hello—to 3 distinct water bird species?

The three photos I present today are ‘long shots,’ in spite of having specific (bird) subjects. However, here the focus is on taking in the scenes.

Just imagine the below views and they are sure to speak ‘calm’ to you.

Now, please say your first hello to these Asian Open-billed Storks.

Eating is serious business. The elegant storks seem placid, yet are ‘immersively’ busy.

May the Little Egret have your second hello?

You can’t miss that white fluff. The Egret with an impeccably graceful gait.

And please will you direct your third hello to this Pond Heron?

You have no notion how tense one gets photographing a nervous bird between branches. Until you try a shot like this!
