An attempt at photography. These two were taken at Karanji Kere in Mysore. It's a beautiful place. All one can see into the far end is greenery and nothing else.
Karanji Kere has a variety to offer to tourists. It has a butterfly park, a small lake, and a small aviary. We couldn't visit the lake and the butterfly park due to lack of time. But the aviary is mind-blowing. I mean it. It is a small enclosure, which has mesh limiting it from all possible sides.
The fascinating bit is this: a path meanders inside the aviary. One comes in close contact with the birds. Real close; i almost touched the peacock.
Various species of pheasants are also maintained in addition to the peacock, the great indian hornbill(Buceros bicornis), wild hens, ducks and the likes. I was indeed lucky to picture the hornbill. Though the top portion appears to be chipped.
And need i say about the peacock. We got to witness it dance in the rain with it's tail feathers spread in a semi-circle. How majestic!
A slight drizzle to accentuate the enthusiasm. A water body close by amidst lush green surroundings. Aha!
