Brahminy Kite - Busy building nest

Spent today morning at our office West campus, off Mysore Road. I spent around 45 minutes standing inside my "hide" but couldn't spot any activity of birds until I found one black shouldered kite. I also shot a brahminy kite that was busy building nest.

Lalbagh - quite a change!

I didn't visit Lalbagh for last couple of weeks and there's dramatic change in the flora. Lots of fruit bearing trees have already lost lot of fruits and leaves are starting to fall and it's not the same Lalbagh that I saw 2 weeks ago. Looks like winter's span is reduced we're set for an early summer :( This was the only image I could make today.

Misty morning at Eagleton

I along with 26 other MindTree minds spent 2 and a half days at Eagleton Resorts close to Bangalore last week on a training. Bangalore weather was more Delhi'ish with fog reducing the visibility to 30ft even at 9.30am! On saturday I shot couple of golf-course-scapes in early morning.

The one below was shot just before the sun rose and hence it has more dramatic colours. Infact I was surprised at the magenta colours that nature threw up!

White Cheeked Barbet

It's raining barbets at this particular tree at Lalbagh. This tree really presents a great opportunity to shoot barbets feeding on atti (in kannada) fruit.

Fly catchers @ Lalbagh

I was lucky to spot a parradise fly catcher and a verditer fly catcher at Lalbagh last weekend. I love winter, coz it brings loads & loads of birds!!!

Activites galore @ Lalbagh

Spent Saturday & Sunday mornings at Lalbagh and it's teeming with birds. I saw fly catchers (paradise and verditer) , orioles, parakeets, starlings & on on.. Will post some of them here.

North Kanara - Landscape

This is from my last month's trek to Hedigudda. This one is on the border of Shimoga and North Kanara dist.

Bushlark stare

As I laid on the ground & stalked closer to her, she stared me as if she wanted me to get off from her territory. I stayed silently & once she realized that I wasn't harming her, she continued with her search of food.
