I'm back

Life has been just too hectic for me. I've taken on a new role and new responsibilities which leave me less time for anything personal. I actually gave up on the blog because some of my readers asked me to stop writing and let Adu write. However, he too is busy at his hoary old age of 12 getting around and doing things that 12-year-olds do.

I will begin posting again, but I don't know when and how I will manage the time.

I've been doing a little travelling. On January 13, 2010, I took a trip to my favourite place - B.R. Hills or to be more specific, the K.Gudi camp of the Jungle Lodges and Resorts where I did manage to shoot (with a camera of course) a lot of birds but very few animals. The most prominently featured bird during this trip was the Crested Serpent Eagle, a bird that I've shot many times before.

This was a meeting of the NTP people. All those of us who had done the Naturalist Training Program and one of our group organized a meeting that we solemnly agreed to have annually. Can't wait for the next one.

The next trip came up exactly one month later and was to do with exploring Karnataka's history rather than wildlife. Two friends and I joined a group that was going out to explore the Hoysala empire.

I shall crave your patience till I can post about that trip. I did take a lot of photographs but will hold off with most of them till I can come up with a half decent blog entry. Wildlife of note was a solitary spotted owlet that remained absolutely alert to our every movement at one of the temples that we visited.
