Happy Holi

With blooming TESU flowers
However this is just start of the flowering but colourful enough to mark its presence in the landscape. I've been lucky to be at that particular region at just the right time. And it's sheer pleasure to feel this Flame of the Forest so close. "Butea monosperma", commonly known as Dhak, Tesu, Palasi and Chhevla. And every part of this tree is useful in many ways. Having found it's flower's use in medicines, in everyday life in the form of Dona-Pattal made from leaves, it's resin being used in leather industry and so on.
Happy to encounter such a beautiful and useful tree.
Happy Holi

Beautiful Barbet

This beautiful "Coppersmith Barbet" visited our home looking for shelter for him and checked a few tree trunks for making nestling hole in their trunks. This bird makes his nest by carving hole in tree trunks. This happens only when your habitat is surrounded with a variety of trees.  This time I noticed a bunch of Purple Sunbird and an Indian Tree Pie too.

The benefit of growing flowers in your garden enables you to witness beautiful variations in forms, colours and textures. Also if one can spare some time and spend it among flowers, it helps in calming down.
Happy Sunday.

Manual focusing is better to rely upon when working with Sun Birds. At least this works for me all the time.

Nature's Jewels

Every time Nature provides you with endless opportunities at the most tough days. This was clicked on a day laden with dense fog while conducting a Wildlife Photography Workshop on December 23rd' 2012. There were a lot of cobwebs with water beads in endless patterns but this especially attracted me due to the interesting pattern of droplets looking like some jewellery.
