When the meals were over, the migratory cranes took their voyage to the western seaside in the evening from their halting stakes in the lake.The buoyant waves and the sparkling sun in the frills of the waves added strength to their wings and the body.The aim was to reach the nesting islands before the sun slides beyond the sea line in the west !
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 .
Noontime perplexed in the seawater with the scattered sea plants floating slightly across the dense surface of the dockyard that remained aloof….where the black cormorant started brooding over the camouflage of the noontime fever of light and the distant sea line….,the ship fumed in sighs, far away from the yard….,
The reflections on the sea reminded a mirror of dreams yearning to be real…..from where the bird began …!
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.
Depicted here are the postures of Indian Pond Herons during the forenoon and afternoon in my Canon 500D with its prime lens. I would like to describe these images rather portraits of the bird than mere bird-images..!
