A family of eight Parakeets perched on leafless barren tree. There seem to be a serious discussion or difference of opinion. After about a few minutes I found them very calm but looking in different direction and about to disburse(second image). It was a sheer joy to watch and the day spent well.
Close up of snail on leaf image spotted at my back yard. We all come across these and many other creatures but a very few make use of converting these casual small critters into a good photographic subject. Sensing the danger due to movements and distractions caused by me it retracted its body into the shell and I had to wait for a few minutes to make its way and move so that I could capture the whole body and the movement. At last snail won the race as I ran out of time and patience and be contented with the one what I captured. Lesson learnt is “Patience pays”.
Spectacular view of African tulip flowering tree or “Spathodea” in full bloom on hilltop at Yercaud, TN, India was a sight to behold and cherished the moment against the clear blue sky and white fluffy clouds. See the close up view of another image apt to be named as flame of the forest.
