Watching this group of four Black winged Stilts ( Scientific Name Himantopus himantopus ) at the Pushkar Lake as the Sun set was both symbolic and beautiful.
Do notice the featured image as they fold up up one leg and tuck in their heads under their wings in perfect synchronization with the Setting Sun.
The Setting Sun gently extends a Golden Wand over the Lake at Pushkar , Rajasthan, India
The Golden Wand starts turning the quivering waters of the Lake into a Golden Hue .
The Stilts or Avocets call it a day and start lining up on the lakeshore to sleep.
An Egret ( Scientific name Bubulcus ibis) joins the Stilts as the Sun takes a final bow before setting over the Horizon.
Watch the lights being turned on in the City of Pushkar as Night extends its shadow over the Golden Lake.
Unlike many two legged in Urban cities across the world, these birds choose to sleep as natural light recedes and the Sun Sets.
