TH13: Outside Phra Kaew

These little fellas were seen adorning the exterior wall of the Wat Phra Kaew. There was a delirious rush to have a glimpse of the emerald statue inside the temple, but I felt there were so many other equally impressive items to be seen outside.

Yes...you are correct, Ayush.
These are indeed impressive - and I love the angle you've captured them. Their faces are a little creepy... are they supposed to be birds, do you know?
Outstanding capture, great framing and use of focus, well done!
So many fierce guardians, nicely captured.

In Dutch they say they were "short of eyes." I bet you felt very Dutch that day, Ayush! smile

And taken in peace, too, Ayush. Did you get to see the emerald statue in the end?

I wonder who was the original model for that mask? I bet there are no end of photographic opportunities to be had.
Nice dof effect!

They are not very good looking Ayush.
They seem to be both fierce and appealing at the same time!
love the soft focus effects at the end!
Are these supposed to be a rank of warriors Ayush.
I suspect these little fellas are there to protect the emerald statue inside the temple, Ayush.

Their eyes are bulging for a beautiful dancer that walked past.

Thanks for the reply on Buddhism.
Very impressive Ayush! Great focus and DOF.
Is this Garuda?
Sorry I am not very at this...
C'est une photo magnifique avec cette profondeur de champs
A fearsome looking bunch aren't they. Nice shot Ayush
Lovely shot.

Great depth of field. They are certainly something not to be missed.
