  3. @ Arnab, Yeah... The bird got a whiff of me, and was about to fly off! I was careful not to disturb it again; hence a better snap next time...

  10. I am also an amateur photographer and taken photos of various birds like King fisher, Bee eater, Cuckoo etc in our vicinity at Chennai and understand the thrill in getting a good picture of birds. A great photograph Nisha.

    1. Thank you very much for your kind words... Photography has always been a passion for me and even though I am a long way from understanding the nuances of it, I am happy clicking photos of anything and everything. As you mentioned, it is a thrill in itself.
