Indian Pond Heron

Photograph of a non-breeding Indian Pond Heron, during breeding season there is a change in its plumage and the bird looks much prettier. Although this bird is generally found near marshes and pond foraging for amphibians or fish, I spotted this one dry land, probably foraging for frogs or toads. Since the colour of this heron blended well with the surroundings, I found it difficult to make the bird standout in this photograph. The bird was so well camouflaged that, its because of its call, I managed to spot it.
Photograph Details: 1/30 sec , f/4.5 , spot metering, WB cloudy.
