19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

I love poetry. Loved it since childhood. With time, poetry writing metamorphosed into the visual poetry of images. And there is nothing quite like the minimalist monochromes to bring out the beauty in the natural world. A lot of my written poetry was sculpted by love. So it was fitting that this picture of the waterbirds at Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary was made from a boat on a misty morning on 14th February, 2021 - Valentines Day. One can see an osprey, a darter and some cormorants. Bad weather made for good pictures. No bait was used.
