Why did I think of this story?....well....here are amoghavarsha's pictures of the Dandeli trip
Green Bee Eater:
Blue-Capped Rock Thrush:
Malabar Pied Hornbill (photo by KM)
And the Malabar Grey Hornbill:
The fact is that, in each case, it really WAS the same bird that we were photographing! (The differences in the photographs lie in the fine job of post-processing that Amogh does.)
(I never even got to see the Eurasian Martin, and KM's shot of the Asian Paradise Flycatcher was ruined by his having the wrong settings on the camera. Otherwise they would have been here too.)
...It might have been much easier for one of us not to take the camera, and just take xeroxes of the other's photographs...!
So, to make sure I am one up, here's one photo that Amogh could NOT have taken.
Presenting the bird that loves the forests, the Taller Tick-Bitten Lens Ogler...
