Macro – – Coloring the Ground

 

All the while I ignored it. But when the morning light shone on this tiny amazing plant crawling its way forward, I had to click it. The tiniest element (is it a flower or a leaf..?) leading the way for its new branch seemed to me the most courageous and also the most inviting for my camera. The green grass added a little more magic to it.

Himalayan Bulbul or White-Cheeked Bulbul

Bird Family : Pycnonotidae – Asian bulbuls, finchbills & malia
Location: Palampur, Himachal Pradesh, India
Date: December 22, 2015

The word ‘Bulbul’ is a Persian name for Nightingale.

I have once before posted few pics of the same bird (click here to go to that post), but back then I hadn’t realized that it has a hairstyle like the famous cartoon character ‘Johnny Bravo‘. Hehehe. Here, the cloudy sky provided great light to click this lovely bird, which showed up suddenly to (I am sure) surprise me😉 or more likely, to drink water.

Changing Perspective

“Those who see the cosmic perspective as a depressing outlook, they really need to reassess how they think about the world. Because when I look up in the universe, I know I’m small but I’m also big. I’m big because I’m connected to the universe, and the universe is connected to me.”
~Neil deGrasse Tyson

DSC05367These pictures were taken on March 3rd, 2012. It’s sometimes good to look back into your old collection and find something you forgot or couldn’t share then.:)

I hope February is going lovely for you!😉
