  110. Hi Sandip, beautiful shots. I loved the way the majesty of these birds has been captured. I would like to get in touch and learn a lot of bird behaviour. Although I carry a DSLR, I am more of a wild-life enthusiast first and a photgrapher second. πŸ™‚

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

  113. Excellent shots.Fantastic colors and a great collection.

  114. This is a fantastic site,I have seen all the photos from the gallery and the comments from others who have been with your group and all the demo cathing the king cobra which is just superb.I have traveled about 25times to India from Malaysia,been to many bird sanctuaries,stayed at forest lodges,and i am so appointed that I have missed the right people that’s you two gauri shanker and shreeram. ME hanging around in Bangalore lalbarg,went to a supposed to be a well known tour operator ,and booked an expensive trip to a tiger reserve only to find some spotted dears,and wild dogs and a few feather drooped off peacocks.Anyway it could have been a bad season..if i and many of my birding and wild life ,photographic friends visit India its a definite that we will contact you and leave the rest to you as I know how efficient and genuine you are organizing these trips.Its definitely an excellent contact.I also post some photos at http://gsjeevi/photos/ and also at flickers.I will leave to Australia Melbourne,next week for a month long visit and tell them of your site,as there is an annual photographic exhibition at Ballorat,which i have been before and hoping to seeing it again.Thank You keep up the good work.Well done my Indian Friends.

  119. I am planning to visit Jayamangali/Maidenahalli soon.
    I am looking for options to stay overnight near Jayamangali,
    When I called the RFO today, I was told that no more bookings are made at the guest house room because of the water problems.

    What other options are available to stay at Jayamangali ? Please let me know if anyone knows.

  120. beautiful pics…loved seeing them…

  121. its just awesome saandip………….

  122. Hi

    I would like to visit Bannerghatta National Park and Lalbagh Botanical Garden both.

    Is it advisable to stay overnight in BNP? if yes, which lodge is most suitable? which safari packages do you advise?


  123. Beautiful pictures and birds. I was almost there as I was in Chiang Mai the last two weeks. However, I plan to come back on 15th December and will surely visit the place a s do some birding. Can you suggest a medium range hotel to stay for birding? Did you come form India or do you live around. I live in Gurgaon but I come to Thailand often as I work in Laos. If you happen to come again, let me know. We could jointly go for birding.
    Best regards

    • Thanks for dropping by & i am glad you liked my photos. I had visited Thailand particularly for bird photography, you could try Mr.Deang place in Doi Inthanon & Banmaka Near Keang Krachan NP.
      If i am visting Thailand again will drop a mail well in advance.

  124. Hi!

    Lovely pictures you have here of Gulakmale. We went there last weekend but the lake was almost drying up. Didn’t see too many birds also, or maybe just our luck. I have written about it in my blog Did you check out the falls in your subsequent trips?

  125. nice photography…. beautiful place near Bangalore ,,,,

  126. awesome!!

  132. Hi Saandip…Nice pictures.
    I visited TG halli last year in Feb-2012 and spotted few bar headed geese there.
    Would like to see them this year too. Planning to go again on first week of Feb. Is this the right time?
    The image of bar headed geese posted in the blog is taken in Jan-2013?
    Please suggest.

    • Hi Shashwat.
      Thankyou… You could plan this week as its the right time & we saw more than 75 species of birds in a single day. Its at its best now. Yes the bar headed geese was seen on 13th Jan 2013.

  133. Hi, I am a student of communication studies. I want to make a documentary on snakes (about snake bites and other facts).

  139. Beautiful. Hearty congrats.

  140. I recently found 2 of them inside my house.. I taught they wer earthworms . But the movement like a snake shocked me. When I read about them I was relaxed as they are harmless and feed on ant eggs

  141. Nice information……any specific season or time to visit…..this place……..I see u visited during December…….saw your article just now and I feel like going there for birding/photography……suggest me the best time to visit……thank you………..girish

  142. very nice photo’s and I have enjoyed viweing it

  143. Amazing! Must visit – are these all shot in the day?

  144. Please help me to know the way to reach Agumbe, preferably by public transport and about best time to visit for Amphibians.

    • Hi Guru.
      Nearest bustop is Agumbe & nearest Railway Station is Shimoga.
      If you are travelling from bangalore a late night bus of KSRTC’s Rajahamsa is there & it will reach agumbe by morning 7am.
      Best time would be during monsoon season. June to September.

  145. The pictures are good, photographing insects in natural habitat is difficult, and i appreciate your interest, some of these should have been shot from a dfferent angle so that one can make out clearly what they are, but i know it is difficult and not as easy as making a comment . the picture of “colourful hopper in defensive ..” needs a correction of the legend. it is a fulgorid bug a relative of the cicada, similarly the tree hopper is called a flatid bug.

    • Thanks Mallik for dropping by & leaving a comment. Glad you liked the pics. I know what you meant, as i will be in agumbe during July 2013 will keep in mind these point & hopefully comeup with some good images. Thanks for Idying .. will change in due time.
      Thanks Again πŸ™‚

  146. I am planning to visit Jayamangali by tomorrow, 28th June. I am looking for options to stay overnight near Jayamangali, When I tried reaching the RFO today, but the numbers were not working. Please let me know what other options are available to stay at Jayamangali !!!

    • Hi Doyeli.
      I am afraid there aren’t any options to stay overnight. FD has stopped this facility long back.
      Nearest & safest would be Tumkur, If you come across any nearby during your visit please let me knw & i would love to include that info here.

  147. Thanks Krups πŸ™‚

  148. Nice blog.Really such a nice and interesting blog information like it..
    Thanks for sharing such a significant information.

  172. Beautiful clicks. Did you get the migratory ducks? We had visited the area early this year but they had already left. It’s a pity that most of the wetlands all around the country are turning into dumpyards. Very soon there will be no Deepor Beel.

  173. Wow! Superb pics. Its amazing that I live(d) in Guwahati and yet I never visited Pobitora. Always took it to be a poor cousin of Kaziranga. Must visit it this when I go home. But sadly, there is rampant rhino poaching in Pobitora. That title of ‘highest density’ wont stay for long.

    We are visiting Bangluru onb 29 January with group of 25 students of Maharshi Dayanand College, Mumbai.and two days with us before we proceed to Nagarhole. Would you suggest this place to take students for birding. Is it good season? or hebbel lake? Kindly suggest.
