Superb weekend....

Two birding trips, one to Ramnagara and one to Ragihalli in the Bannerghatta Forest evening with old film music and great friends....catching up with old friendships...what could be better? I am a very lucky person.

Four of the most common things one can see on a trip to the outdoors:

The MORNING GLORY (Convolvulus):

The GARDEN LIZARD (Calotes versicolor)

The dragonfly (Dontask methisname)

And a PALM SQUIRREL (Onceagain noname), straying from the tree for which he is named, and enjoying the fruit of the CASUARINA tree:

Lots of pics to follow...once I get done with my backlog of work!
