I am Looking at You!
I don't usually photograph birds on man-made objects, but made an exception for this image because this was the 1st time I photographed this species.

I will be away for a full day Bird Count today and tomorrow, so may not be able to attend to your lovely comments on this post. Apologies in advance! :)

Off for a week!
I will be travelling to Corbett National Park to attend the 2nd Uttarakhand Spring Bird Festival at Powalgrah. I will also be conducting a workshop on bird photography.
On this trip I will try something I have not done before - post images from the field. I have set up an Instagram a/c last month for this purpose. In case any of my friends are on Instagram and want to follow the posts, they can find me here:
http://instagram.com/sumitsen_insta/
I will of course share many images here after I return, so you will not miss anything worthwhile :)
Those curious to know more about the festival can find information here: http://www.uttarakhandbirdfestival.in/about/about-usbf/

A Splash of Blue!
Verditer Flycatcher shot on my recent trip to Corbett National Park, India.
This one is to wish my dear friend +Jerry Johnson, a belated Very Happy Birthday.
Jerry is one of the finest men that I have had the opportunity to know, and I often think that I could shoot the breeze with him for hours and he would not mind! :)
Also goes out for two of the very best - +Meg Rousher and +Khrystiane Friedli because they love blue! :)
