It was 11th April'15 n i saw pics of Flamingos on my friend Dr.Divyang Dave's Facebook update, so i msg him for location. He is very kind person n guide me for location. i am very thankful to Dr.Divyangbhai Dave.The place is just 10-15km away from my house so i was excited to see them with my eyes n wanna frame.
That day was last day of my prince's exam so we were in movie and came home at around at 1am even though i wake around 7.30am,get in hurry to go there and reached around there aprx 8.15am.
when i had seen flamingos 1st time from far away i was so excited n started taking pics with going towards them but my bad luck was started. a Raptor was on hunt n all Flamingos fly away.i thought,i have a time to approach inside where flamingos would come so moved inside.after waiting of 30-40min they again came but far away from me n this time it was very bad situation,i cudn't go further inside to them coz there was tide came in river n every where was wet n mud but some how i managed to go lil closure and again started clicking.got some good shots but after 10-15min that Raptor again came for hunt n all flamingos fly away so far.
i was very disappointed coz didn't took close up shots.Returned home n thought to will go again there for best shots.
As per plan i had decided to go there again after of 2 days mean on 14th April'15.Thought to wake up at 7.30am but due to subconscious mind effect i wake up around at 6.30 am.Reached there before 8am and find closet location n sit there.taken few shots, flamingos are coming towards me but sudden they turn back and going away from me, i was surprised that why this happen!!!,i saw some photographers are taking shots in standing, handheld n they are going towards these flamingos so these wildlife Photographers been noticed by Flamingos n went back....some fly away.My mood was upset n much anger.
i had waited n waited for long time but Flamingos didn't came n did time pass with taking photos of mud-skipper,pond heron etc. After 2 hours+ of waiting they again came n got good shots of flamingos in group n single flamingo,even recorded videos.
