Great Indian Hornbill Female, India by Narayanan Iyer

The Great Indian Hornbill is one bird which always fascinated me and seeing one was a my dream for years. I tried a lot but didn't get a chance to see this beauty. This year, the moment I came to know where I may get an opportunity to see this magnificent bird, I headed out to that place. The moment we reached I saw a huge bird flew past us which made my skip a beat. I was awestruck in its beauty. That long wingspan, massive beak and black and white feathers with a tinge of yellow. It was an absolute beauty. I was lucky to spend an entire day observing them and their behavior and in that process made some beautiful images. This is one of my favorite images which shows how this huge bird disappears amongst the leaves.
