  1. When this bird gets a little older there may be work on Broadway. Did you use a tripod?

  7. Those are amazing pictures John. Makes me very sad though when I think of the migratory cranes on the lake outside our property that are being shot indiscriminately by the nari koruvas and nobody will listen to me. Mallika

  8. Thank you for sharing these photos, which immediately made me think of your recent photos of Indian dancers. Balletic photography! It's all a feast for my eyes. Mira

  11. A great dance. A terrific sequence. Almost like watching a movie. It's a wonderful, humerous nature story. How fast was it shot? Very sharp.
