Its Lock down time and one cannot venture out.
But who can stop anyone from looking outside?

Hello Prabir.

You seem to be making good use of your lockdown situation.   It's hard to believe that the whole world is "sheltering in place" while the covid19 pandemic runs its course.  How nice that you have a son-in-law with an available-to-you lens arsenal!

I like both of the heron images.  Something about the second one appeals to me a bit more.  Maybe just a few more interesting things going on in the frame.

Oh, do you know what's up with JJMPF?  I can't bring it up over here in the US.

Happy day.

:)

Some say that those of us who like to talk about cameras should instead go and take pictures. I say we should go and also take pictures.

Henry, thanks a lot for your reply.
I was trying to get your news in view of the COVID-19 situation. I had even posted  personal message in JJMPF. From what I see and hear, its not going to stop soon. It is still uncontrollable and no vaccine is in site in near future. My daughter is a scientist working in the US company Thermo Fisher as a Global Product Manager. She is posted at Bangalore. Their company is also working for COVID-19. What I understood from her is that anything good is about 4/5 months away at least.
 
Yes, JJMPF is out of order for last few days.
