I know it is not a Sunday and it is not a photo day. But this is what happens when I do not travel for nearly two months! I have to keep this blog alive with places and things around me and you have to view them! See it is better for all involve it I travel more and often and frequently! Otherwise we all get to see just birds!
For the past three years (or is it more?) there has been a Purple Sunbird nest in my backyard. I do not go very close to the nest because I do not wish to startle these fragile creatures.
But as they have a nest they keep coming and going at all hours during the day and probably at the night too. I was just standing in my balcony clicking sunset when this male Purple Sunbird came and chirped around. It didn’t seem to even notice a 75-300 mm lens pointing at it. Hence this happy picture for me at least.
I do have a solid love-hate relations with bird photography. I love it when I get a good picture, which happens rarely. But I hate it when the birds fly away while I am trying to click them, which happens way to frequently.
And even though I love to click birds I am counting the days like anything (I am almost as impatient as my daughter gets when she is waiting for something to happen) when I get to travel again.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
