It is said that the site where ICRISAT campus is located - Patancheru - has had unbroken human inhabitation for more than a thousand years. Many relics were excavated when the construction and landscaping was carried out. A young creeper emerges from close to the urn, linking the past with the present.
This beautiful bird mocks me. I can hear his/her calls from the branch of the tree in front of my house. But by the time I have got my camera out, the bird hides behinds the leaves, and continues mocking me from behind the foliage.
When I stepped out to shoot this Kingfisher, Ashley my pet cat decided to walk with me. Now, when you have a cat as an escort, it is not exactly the most appropriate moment to shoot bird pictures. However, I managed this shot before the bird flew away.
