  8. Hello Anu,

    Click here to see where it's located. It's not very worth visiting unless you have powerful binoculars, but yes, the efforts by the authorities are good. We saw small groups of deer far away from us. We saw a jackal also.

  16. Butterflies are so very brave. Look at those tattered back wings, but still on the creature goes...flying so many thousands of miles despite being so fragile.

  22. There are many ways to flight, But I think butterflies have it down the best. They make it look so effortless... Hard for us and the landings are the hardest!

  27. I love photography and should invest in a good camera...what do you suggest?...I like wild life and closeups too
    I love your work...you have seen mine with my cybershot and must be laughing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sure I'm NOT laughing. The output you have with the cybershot is awesome! If you get a good DSLR, you'll outperform me :) Still, if you want to leave me behind in photography, I recommend Canon 500D with 18-200 mm IS kit lens. But if you really like super-zoom and super-clarity, then go for a fixed focal length lens over 400mm, of course, if you are a wealthy person.
