21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Birds flying at dawn at Thol Bird Sanctuary, Gujarat

I am a Wildlife photographer and a birder at the same time. I used to participate in bird surveys conducted by the forest departments of Govt. On one such occasion, I reached early morning at Thol Bird Sanctuary near Ahmedabad, Gujarat, and I photographed this. The sun was yet to be seen on the horizon but the colours were beautifully filled the sky, and these birds were flying out from their roosting place.
