Lazy Sunday Photo- Gull Billed Tern

in Birds,Canon D550,Gujarat,India,Photography

For this lazy Sunday (Chhavi and I are traveling too, more when I get back) I have this Gull Billed Tern from Koteshwar, Kutch, Gujarat. I had a pain in the neck while trying to capture the birds holding that 2 kg lens (edit: I should have been careful when I said 2 kg lens. It is actually 481 g and only feels like 2 kg)! They are just not camera friendly.

Hope you too had a great weekend!

Rajesh the EXIF is ISO 200, F 5.6 and shutter speed 1/2000. It is actually 481 g but feels like 2 kg :D It is a Canon 75-300.

Hi Mridula, you write very well. Your writing is interesting and entertaining. It creates an eagerness in the reader to read further and more. However, you need an editor to proof-read your blogs before you publish them. The reason is that I find syntactical and other language-related mistakes in your writing.
For example, in this blog, you said “…birds holding that 2 kg lens”. In this phrase, you would want to put a comma after “birds”, unless you meant that the birds were holding the 2 kg lens. This is the impression that I get the first time I read this sentence.

I read your other blogs and found similar issues in them too. I assume that you would like your blogs to be read by larger audiences as you travel more and do lots of adventure, photography and writing.

I also assume that you do not have enough time to proofread your blogs with the busy schedule you have. I can help you proofread your blogs, identify mistakes and point them out to you before you publish them.
Please email me if you need my help.

Warm regards,
Manohar

Hi Manohar, thank you for your valuable feedback. It is so kind of you to offer help but as I try to publish a post daily I can not burden you with my proof reading! But heartfelt thanks for your offer.

Regards,
Mridula
