13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

After coming back to home from morning shoot in near forest in Lakhimpur Kheri, I noticed activity of a pair of Greater Coucal (Centropus sinensis) in open backyard of my agriculture farm, surrounded by different type of trees and crops. After little observation I found that there was a nest of Greater Coucal on a tree. Both parents were busy in finding food for young born chicks. This bird got a frog as a prey and started reaching towards nest and of course me, when I captured the moment. I did not try to capture any other activity apart from this (bringing meal to nest).
