Of creatures...

My wildlife experience is inextricably tied up with the several avid wildlifers I have met. Just now when I saw sainath's post about the Grey Headed Fishing Eagle, I instantly thought of yathin...even though HE now signs himself Elephas Maximus! So I was musing..and I realize that I think of some particular fauna when I see the names of some people...let me describe the associations at least with some LJ-ers!

kalyan....the bonnet macaques of BR Hills and the Crested Serpent Eagle which he pointed out to us when we first met him in that magical place...

amoghavarsha...that rock python which he photographed..and the Forest Calottus.
sanathreddy...the crocodile....
sainath...the Spotted Owlet....
chirdeep_shetty...the dhole and the chital, the former usually hunting the latter!
kaadupapa..no, not the kaadupapa (the Slender Loris), but the elephants which he snapped in that beautiful photograph...

And so it goes...
