River Terns

TG Halli backwaters attracts plenty of river terns from the north during the winter. Yesterday me, Rakesh & Murthy visited early morning. Though over all it wasn't a great photography outing in terms of number of "keepers" I did manage to get couple of river terns in flight.

Swallow scape

I'd always wanted to shoot swallows. But they wouldn't seem to sit on one place except for electric wires! Finally at Bheemeshwari yesterday, I got a chance to shoot one of them albeit from a distance. Here is one swallow scape from our visit to Bheemeshwari. The frame filler of Swallow can still wait at least for now!

Kestrels again!

Rakesh joined me and Manoj today to Hesaraghatta. It seemed today for couple of hours that it was a waste to come with nearly no light. Till 9am it was completely foggy and no activities near the lake. However the Sun did come out after we finished our packed √Źdli-Vade-Karabath" and Kestrels didn't disappoint today! I wish the male kestrel was more cooperative, but that gives us one more chance to visit Hesaraghatta.

For the first time in my life me, Manoj & Nagesh got to see Kestrel! Boy, how beautiful this lady was. Had a chance to spend nearly an hour with her. Though the lighting wasn't that good, we did manage to get some decent shots.
