Bird Is The Word.

In 1974 Bannerghatta in Bangalore, Karnataka, was declared a National Park. In 2002 part of the park was declared a Biological Park. In 2017 I visited and declared the park spectacular! For 3 days, occasionally cramped up in a bird hide for hours on end, I learned a couple of things about photographing birds and other wildlife. I also lost a pair of shoes to torrential rain. Incidentally, is weight wrist training a thing? Camera lenses are extremely weighty!

rior to our plodding all over his contemplations, this chap was probably thinking about youth, beauty, the vastness of being and the inherent difficulties of living on a rock with the occasional visiting pachyderm. Or maybe he was thinking about cake. Or maybe I'm thinking about cake!

  1. Superb…as always!

    In magical pix and mirthful words
    You paint for us, O wizard
    Portraits of most delightful birds
    And even an odd meditative lizard
    :)
