A few peaceful moments spent in heaven, amongst its resident angels.
An evening well spent 🙂
The Alpha Female of the ‘wolfgang’ that rules the lakes, stares at the distance, making sure if the area is secure 😀
Yet another ‘best of mornings’ spent at home!
An Indian Palm Squirrel stretches itself out on the service shaft ladder during the early hours of the day at Mumbai.
Like most wildlife in the region, these small and cute rodents have witnessed a boom in population during the last few years. They are often seen doing daredevil stunts like scaling straight walls, from the bottom to the top and vice versa and often come inside homes, either due to curiosity or in search of food. Even though their climb to the very top possess a threat to them and they often end up battling for life with the Black Kites and Crows that try to pick them up, neither their population or their climbing seems to slow down.
Bruises on the hands of an elder member of the monkey clan are seen clearly during a break they took at service shaft during their usual midday expeditions in the area.
A flock of Gull Billed Terns fly around the holding pond at Seawoods during early hours.
The water at the ponds recede and rise frequently. Sometimes it’s controlled by the local fishermen who come to fish in the area with the help of check dams at different locations and otherwise, it’s due to the tides. And as the water had receded today, the ponds saw a lot of different birds who had gathered to get hold of an easy meal in the shallow waters.
A trio of Painted Storks land at the holding pond at Seawoods during early hours.
These big birds take a good area to land, dropping speeds gradually and often glide before they reach the surface of water and finally land.
Two Painted Storks fight for their share of the catch during early hours at the holding pond at Seawoods.
Getting a catch, a competitive business as ever, often leads to quarrels and the options are to either get your catch and fly away to enjoy your meal (which also has the risk of having your meal fall down during flying away at haste!)
Or the option is to fight it out..
A Painted Stork flies past with a catch during early hours at the holding pond at Seawoods. Getting a catch is a highly competitive business especially when the whole flock is concentrated at one point of the pond. And this one decided to have it all for itself and flew away from the group to enjoy it’s meal alone.
