During this same month October, but 8 years back, I was living at a peaceful and serene place in Kodaikanal. Those were awesome days. I still want to go back to those years of absolute happiness and joy. Also in terms of Photography, I did find some amazing creatures, but I had just entered into photography by that time and so I didn’t do justice with my camera. One cute little warmth of a bird in the frame above, yes, its the commonly seen “Pied Bushchat (Saxicola caprata)” male. Photographers, mainly experienced photographers usually avoid this bird, as they would have seem them soo many times. But for beginners, its our model. They seem to be ok with human interactions. Especially this guy, won’t fly off even if I went as close as I would grab him with my hands. He was OK with me and I had just recently bought 300mm f4L lens. I literally learnt using a tele prime lens with him as model. 😊
