Quick visit to Hulimangala, 300414

On the spur of the moment, my friend Rosita Sequiera came by with her son Mark and picked me up, and off we went; I wanted to show her the magnificient trees of Hulimangala.


She’d brought some nice tea in that flask!

We started the evening with a beautiful


soaring above:


<lj-cut text="a little more if you have the inclination…."

One of these


was dancing around on the barbed wire, for all the world like a Fantail!


Mark, who’s done well in his exams, was all smiles:


I took Rosita down the avenue of the wonderful giants, which feels like a cathedral to me:


Everywhere on the tall trees there were beehives, and I clicked one under construction:


The sun behind the clouds was an amazing sight, and I could not stop clicking the Fingers of God:



Though the lake nearby was nearly dry, it had a beauty of its own:


The figs on the Banyan tree were an invitation for many birds:


You can see how beautiful is the camouflage of the


with its body against the leaves, and its beak against the figs:


These two majestic Ficus trees are my landmark to turn off on the road to Hulimangala:


We sighted the Mottled Wood Owl, too, being chased around by the Mynas, then the Parakeets, and then the Kites!
