These were sighted on Sunday morning during my birding walk. Due to insufficient light shot with ISO 6400 and was very unhappy. On Monday morning I set up my 60D with EF100-400 L IS USM on a Manfrotto and cable release. For 20 minutes of exhilaration. The results......................

Animal Kingdom / Birds in the neighborhood park --- Green Bee Eater
« on: November 14, 2012, 10:54:42 AM »
These days I find these Green Bee Eaters in plenty.

The Green Bee-eater (Merops orientalis) (sometimes Little Green Bee-eater) is a near passerine bird in the bee-eater family. It is resident but prone to seasonal movements and is found widely distributed across sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal and The Gambia to Ethiopia, the Nile valley, western Arabia and Asia through India to Vietnam.[2] They are mainly insect eaters and they are found in grassland, thin scrub and forest often quite far from water. Several regional plumage variations are known and several subspecies have been named.

Animal Kingdom / Feeding Time
« on: October 19, 2012, 09:24:19 PM »
Red Vented Bulbul and chicks. In my garage. Now they have flown away. No other bird will use the nest again.

In the first image the three chicks were clamoring for food. The mother made a number of sorties and came with different kinds of insects every time.

In the second image she is feeding a pancake.

Animal Kingdom / Tigress
« on: October 16, 2012, 01:33:30 AM »
Mother of the sub-adults. The sub-adults were photographed in January 2011. Their mother in May 2012. I was on an elephant back for over an hour. This tigress was in a cave just above me. The first image at 7.33 am and the second image at 750 am. 

No Cropping.

Canon 7D with 100-400. Few minutes later she came down to mate (posted earlier as Male Tiger Relaxing 2). He was in a cave below. Video-graphed with a 100-400 and iPad 2.   The elephant was all the time swaying. When the tigers climaxed they roared and that shook all of us  :) including the elephant that was just 10 feet away.

Animal Kingdom / Sub-adult Tiger (Male)
« on: October 16, 2012, 01:18:27 AM »
Had a wonderful time with this sub-adult in my very first outing to a tiger reserve. Few seconds in the presence of a tiger in the wild is awe inspiring.  I had minutes to all myself. No other vehicle/photographer.
