A Blue Tailed Bee-eater emerging from the waters after taking a quick dip

Hydro-therapy- The Blue Tailed Bee-eater is a winter migrant to the wetlands. I have always wanted to freeze the bird just above the water after it has emerged, with water droplets frozen in time. After 150 attempts, I captured this one shot of the bird.
