Thanks Ganesh sir, I wanted to show the galaxy as well so I kept the ISO bit high, hence the ISO was 4000, exposure was 30sec and aperture f/2.8. So this was perfect according to me at that situation.

Viraj, very nice. How long was the exposure? I think lowering the ISO would have added to get a bit more cleaner image? Or you could not have managed it? What was the ISO and aperture?

Fine greyscale, which make the picture three dimensional. I like the panoramaformat. Little disturbing though, is that the tree on the right side is little too early cut of. Maybe better to finish the picture on the right side so only a circa a half of the tree can be seen.

Nice composition - it goes like a wave from the right to the left, and ending with the fox as a little small surprise. (For a while I was thinking of; is this picture really better in black&white? Wonder how it would be in colors? - But then I thought, maybe the red color would make the fox too obvious. )

There is a fundamental drive towards "Trophy" hunting. I suppose that is related to the best genes getting the best chance ?

“Trophy” summarizes it well, Raj. Aptly presented. The larger question is how much of that “hunting” is inevitable in Freudian sense of Id and Ego.

The mixture of blue and grey birds is like a fairy tale. Can the BG be a bit tone down to bring this out a little better ?

Thanks Ganesh! Everytime I go for my little astro missions, I let the camera do what it is meant to do while think about existential questions. How do we comprehend the incomprehensible vastness and scale of the universe? I don't have the answers, only the thoughts.

Ganesh : I shared image of flock of Grandala ( https://ebird.org/species/granda1 ) The image is from my recent tour to North Sikkim. Its a bird found high up in Himalayas. Approx. from January to 1st week of March, one can see large flock of them in North Sikkim . For me it was challenging to capture the blue color as most of the time weather was bad in form of low light,fog ,the birds perched on the tree in opposite light & at times rains & snowing. Forget photography,its a treat to our eyes watching large flock moving from one tree to another in pattern closely similar to starling murmuration.

Poems of Bharatpur. Blue tone adds to the poetic appeal of the image, Ramesh. I think gently reducing the contrast between the tree on the left and the bird by selectively opening the shadow just a bit on the tree may add to the mood (I am not totally sure though).

And “Nature” heals everything! A fine image Gaurav. Thought provoking. I wrote [url=http://www.naturelyrics.com/pages/articles/nature_photography/nature_in_nature_photography.html:2hcwyfjh]this[/url:2hcwyfjh] a few years ago on ‘Nature Photography’ if that interests you.

Very nice image, Dhruva. Billions of suns and trillions of planets!! What does it all mean? Such thoughts are probably interesting tautologies at best!

Blue on blue! I love the crisp definition of the animal. There are a few ornamental flowers in this part of the world where we live. They are not native but was brought to here long ago from foreign countries. They have become weeds to our farmers, very hard to control. Our insufficient knowledge causes natural imbalance. Probably nature knows how to correct this too. Thanks for sharing the story, Anders.

Ganesh: yes this happens during last week of May-first/second week of June near Bhandardara dam in Maharashtra. What we have observed is the numbers amplify just after light drizzles and it decreases with heavy rainfall.

I like the composition, how the kingsfisher is sitting and controlling "his" area. Effective with only a small spot of blue that sticks out when everything is yellow/brown.

Hi Druv, thanks for sharing. You may want to post a short article on how to do "deep sky photography". It may help some of learn from your experiences - equipments you use, challenges, lessons etc etc. You may consider posting it as a thread in the forum.

Yes Adithya it is an eye of a snail located at the tip of tentacles. I managed to go so close using laowa 15mm which is very helpful in such extreme close-up wide angle pictures. Thanks Nevil I did try your suggestion and turning anticlockwise gives it completely different dimension.

Black and white! A fine image Samyak. I hope this contrast is not detrimental to the species. Not sure what the predators are. Nature is a mystery. Everything has exceptions..
