We were thinking what to do with 2 hours spare time. Recalled from the past that we had decided to go to the old Katraj ghat whenever we have short time in hand. The old road is less used now because of the new by-pass created on the Bombay-Bangalore National Highway number 4 [NH4], just a kilometer from my home. We went there.
When we were about to reach the top road of the elephant mountain. We decided to take a break and enjoy the beauty of the valley. We stopped and were looking down the slopes when we spotted this cute fluffy blob jumping here and there in search of insects and nectar [its prime food]. Damn, I was feeling so sad that I don't have 8 lakh rupees [about US$18000]. I could have bought an 800 mm lens and could have taken a way better photo. Of course, my 250 mm lens is doing an excellent job. But 800 mm would have done just the magic of painting this pretty oriental white-eye bird.
