In fact it was completely a barren day to our venture to find out my fav Alcedo Athis, The Common Kingfisher. Actually the month December to March is the perfect time to make photo of them, yet were trying to trace them. We found but the little naughty totally hammered our planning, flying here and there giving no shots at all. Fortunately the stick to mentality provides the result as it stops to take some rest. The shot is taken from the upper portion of the bird, lying on mud. The background was the water of the pond with the dazzle of sun lights as it looks amid the focus light. The passerby just think that we become mad as we are lying on muddy bed without purpose. They were passing shaking their heads without knowing how much importance of it to us…thanks little love to give me that shot.

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. After returning home, he has fallen in love with photography passionately. Photography completely changes his whole attitude towards nature and human being. It gives him a sort of peace to his weary mind, as if a blessings from Almighty.
