Wish you all a Happy Ugadi!

Well...I couldn't get a really good picture of the Karnataka State Bird, the Indian Roller...but thought I would post this picture of the lovely, common bird, the Green Bee Eater...


Green Bee Eater

May Ugadi be as beautiful as this bird, and may the coming year be as full of colour and happiness!

Tamil New Year falls nearly a month after the Kannada New Year (that will be on April 14th)..so that will give me another opportunity to make a wish-post!

The Squirrel Home Furnishing Story

Each time I go to Lalbagh, there is something else to fascinate me and keep me there well beyond the time I have budgeted for myself....one fine morning, I was able to document the story of Mrs Common Squirrel

and back it falls on the ground...sad ending! 15


In Nature, stories don't often have happy endings...as the fluff fell back, some people came to the area, and the disturbed squirrel left it and ran off, perhaps to try all over again later. I had to go, and I left, admiring her efforts...whoever said homemaking was easy?

And whoever said posting photos to LJ is easy? Throughout the afternoon, my "broadband" connection has been at 24 mbps....and this post has taken me forever!
