Photography adventures

My obsession with birds and photography off late has given birth to these pictures.

Guy in the rain!

For lonely people, rain is a chance to be touched. – Simon Van Booy

I saw this big guy perched at the top of the tree, all alone. He didn’t have anyone around him. No one from his feathers. He stood in rain adamantly, looking at a distance. May be he was there to wait for someone, may be he was mad at someone, may be he intended to punish himself or may be he was just alone. How many problems could a crow really have – food problem, relationship issues, territorial conflict- ??

I gazed at him, wondered what thoughts he may have about this world or his bird world. What could a crow possibly think about – a cozy dry place and something delicious to feed upon? I would never know.

How must be there society? All good probably just like everything else in nature. But, wait! There world is not isolated, it’s been contaminated by human desire and avidity. What this crow must think about his society? Pretty discriminatory – is all I can think. Take a moment and think about how most humans treat him and his kins. Now, think about sparrows, finches, parakeets and all the other birds that we adore – we shower love on them, we follow them, we feed them and we want them to be near us. And, with crows – not many like them, or feed them or want to be near them.

Could it be possible that our interference in their world changed the game for them?

Note: I, in no way intend to lower my affection towards other birds or animals. Little love harms no one – not even crows.

Little things: Sparrow love

I have a beautiful sparrow couple visiting me these days and I can’t help but fall in love with their tiny feet, their soft feathers, naughty tweets and teeny, tiny beautiful black eyes. Their presence distracts me to a noise free, stress less, dream-like world. It’s only for a few moments but totally worth.

I could just watch them whole day as they chirp and follow one another – collecting straws, feathers and strings for their nest. It is absolutely divine to watch their swift yet graceful flight.

My camera seems to like them too. 🙂
