Some names are absolutely apt!


Sometimes you wonder how people decide to name the birds, some are really weirdly named, but then there are some that absolutely suit. This one is one of them. The Superb Starling is absolutely an apt name for this starling!


Spotted in huge numbers in Jurong Bird Park in Singapore.


Here a juvenile seems to be demanding to be fed!

The perks of photography & Blogging ;)

So the other day I received a phone call from an unknown number and the caller in a sweet voice told me that she would like to get my address and that she would like to send me a surprise gift on behalf of Asus! I couldn’t quite fathom what was happening but gave my address anyway. I am too cheap to refuse anything coming my way that way.

Eventually I got this Asus Lolliflash, a mobile photography accessory, you can check out its full specifications here. So for a while you might just see loads of photographs from me in low light now that I have a lollipop like looking flash! πŸ˜€ *grin*

It comes with three filters and has three levels of light intensity.


So far it looks pretty handy and useful, wait for more pictures taken by it though! πŸ˜€

P.s. Post written in gratitude for the give away by Asus.



A house sparrow that is increasingly rare in big cities with modern architecture is still pretty common in smaller villages and older parts of the city. Here is one that was keeping us engaged at the Cedo Centre in Moti Virani at Kutch.


She had a pretty hungry baby to feed and she was quite busy all the time! πŸ™‚

Spot Billed Duck


This is a picture I took on our way to Banni Grasslands Reserve from Moti Virani, Kutch near a water body enroute. The couple in this picture is a male and female Spot Billed Duck. They are quite commonly spotted breeding in India, however, did you know one amazing fact about them????

They suffer a postnuptial moult, meaning, they shed all their feathers post nupital!!!!!!

Now if my friend VimalΒ had known about this before hand, he could have saved his life you know! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Beware of the knot I tell you!!
