A Pretty Bird from the Valley School Area, and a trunk...

This is the small minivet...


small minivet 080707 valley school

Whenever I hear the name, I confess that I have this irrepressible image of a very, very tiny animal doctor..."small" "mini" "vet"...

Yes, I *can* hear you groaning (all of you groan ups!)....

And to stop that, here's another picture...That's the beautiful pattern on the trunk of a Cycad, which Karthik informs me is an angiosperm, a very slow-growing plant. This one is a pretty (!) tall tree in Lalbagh...

Worthy of being abstract art...I thought of deepsan when I saw that!
