It’s a great achievement for me that this type of rare photo is provided by my favorite bird ‘Alcedo Athis’. It is a very intelligent and cleaver bird that always tries to deceive us to take photo of it, but I also took some steps to capture her fine caption and here it is. One thing is also revealed by our constant watching of it, that, this is a quarrel some community. If one takes a suitable position of catching fish, the other one comes from nowhere to snatch that prey. I am lucky that from inside the hiding we got that shot within the fraction of seconds.

Nirupam Roy is a school teacher by profession. His story of coming to the world of photography is quite fascinating. In one summer he planned a family trip to Orrisa, India. There he realized the necessity of a camera to capture the scenic beauty of the place surrounded by several sea-coasts. At the same time he wanted to photograph his family, especially his son Arkapravo, and bought his first camera Canon SX 40 HS.

It gives him a sort of peace to his weary mind, as if a blessings from Almighty.
