Photographers Comment

Thank you to all the participants who loved this picture. It was shot in Bhadra Reservior located in Karnataka, India. I was using Canon 7d Mark II + Canon 500mm I which together is quite heavy. Anticipating the raptor to fly, i had locked the focus and waiting for it to fly and finally when it did, i did not hesitate to click the shutter button down. Due to overcast day, i had to retouch on the brightness and bring the original colors out. - Vinod Kulkarni
