Andres Basavara 50, who lives in Bengaluru, India, captured the bird’s stretching routine – on the outskirts of Bengaluru city.

Andres has been a nature and wildlife photographer for 25 years – but claims he’s never seen a bird quite like this.

The beautiful bird, which is a white –breasted Waterhen, can be seen moving bizarrely and stretching its neck and legs.

Andres said: “I was taking photographs as the bird entered the water.

“The bird was positioned in a funny way with its head turned to one side.

“It looked like the bird was practicing yoga!

“I set the camera to a high shutter speed combined with the high frame rate that froze the bird in an awkward and funny manner.

“It was hilarious.”
