Off late, I have got some new visitors in my backyard. A few of them have become regular visitors and friends as well. All of them are very interesting in their own ways. Here are their photos.
All these photos were shot from inside my house. Never stepped out to photograph these fellows.
Shikra - (Accipiter badius) - A common urban raptor. It can be found hunting squirrels and other rodents.
Common Tailorbird - (Orthotomus sutorius) - This is a new member of our neighborhood.
House Crow - This one needs no introduction. A regular visitor and a friend, so close that it will demand food in the morning and afternoon. We can even get quite close to fellow and he wont mind it.
Yet another Shikra. Looks like a sun adult female.
Squirrel with its breakfast. This fellow was happily nibbling away the mango. My Sigma 50-500mm lens did the job for me.
Curious Friend. This one is a new friend. He would sit in a branch which is a bit further than this from my window. On hearing the clicking sound of the camera, he came closer to have a look. He did that every day on hearing the camera sound. And I got a real close shot!
Not just the birds and squirrels. There were some critters as well. Beautiful and scary in their own right.
Not sure what bug this is. Found it in my house one day.
Caterpillar. Found this fellow among the vegetables. Took a few photographs before leaving him out.
Crimson Rose Butterfly. Beauty written all over it!
