I clicked this picture while walking around in Palampur. I was walking from my hotel to the bus stand at Palampur. This Plumbeous Water Redstart was a very obliging bird.
Plumbeous Water Redstart
When I saw it I had the kit lens on the camera. The bird was so patient that I could change my lens and then click pictures. First this was sitting on an electric wire and I got some record keeping shots. But then it changed its position and went to sit on a small hoarding. That is when I got lucky. But this is the only decent bird shot I have from the entire trip.
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!
