Right next to the NRI Estate, Seawoods, Navi Mumbai is this little lake/pond that has been at the centre of a tussle between builders and conservation folk. Quite a few birds frequent this waterbody.
This one was shot just pre-sunrise. From behind the foliage that abuts the lake.
Some dope from wikipedia: The Eastern Great Egret (Ardea alba modesta), a white heron in the genus Ardea, is a subspecies of the Great Egret (A. alba). It was first described by British ornithologist John Edward Gray in 1831.
