Chilika Lake is Asia's largest brackish water lagoon hosting hundreds of local and migratory wildlife species. Mornings at Chilika lake can often be foggy. One such morning, I was photographing birds at the Mangalajodi location at Chilika lake. Sunrise had just happened and the sun was still behind the clouds when I noticed an Asian Openbill carrying a snail for its breakfast. Purplish and green background helped to make a beautiful picture from our boat. The picture is a handheld shot. Equipment used is the Nikon D850 camera with Nikkor 200-500mm lens. As a personal note, Mangalajodi is an amazing site to watch birds such as ibis, herons, etc. catching snakes.
