A BREAKFAST FROM THE WOODS….!

Fruit season arrived in the tropics provided the woods with the lustrous green and blushing oranges among the ripe fruits and canopying leaves….and there came a silky green guest to have the delicious and the most colorful breakfast served by the Mother Nature in the fabulous forenoon thus enjoying the essence of the taste of season in the South of Indian subcontinent .

The reflections on the sea reminded a mirror of dreams yearning to be real…..from where  the bird began …!

The Woodpecker in the Banana Trunk

The Woodpecker in the Banana Trunk

The Woodpecker came to the banana tree on a cloudy evening of the autumn last year..It was to make a quick search of insects among the banana leaves and  the trunk. Since the time has not much light and the woods around found little bit deserted that moment, the bird spend a bit more time than the usual to finish the scan among the trunks and so I got time enough to take shots more than expected, of the bird scanning through the tree , in my canon 500D even though the lighting was not much favorable for a shoot of the kind. Woodpk7WoodpkWoodpk5Woodpk1

This acrobat was found in the rustic woods in the morning ,practicing at the main trunk of the tree at the heights with this piece of twig for a pretty long time in a summer in the past years . I got these moments into my canon 500D with my Sigma 300mm zoom lens…!IMG_2456 IMG_2462

Greater Couccal, the bird of fortune in India, after the summer-bath

The bird of fortune has actually there on the pool to quench the thirst in that summer. But after satisfying the thirst, there broke out the idea to have a full spreading dip into the pool and relax in the water for a long while…these postures reflect the bird after the full-fledged dips in the summer-pool..!!
