12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
BALLET ON WINGS

I clicked these Cattlle Egrets (Bubulcus ibis) just above their nest, next to a pond in a village in Uttar Pradesh, India. Cattle Egrets make their nest in colonies. I spent around four days at that spot and got some beautiful shots of their unusual behavior.
