I was sitting in our living room, facing the balcony door, which was partially open to let in a little light. It was tea time, around 4:30pm. I was cleaning the dust off my camera lens.
My Dad noticed that a Pariah Kite had alighted on the lamp-post just in front of our balcony. Swiftly put in batteries and took a few shots. Since the bird was at eye level, I didnt even have to leave my chair.
This image is best seen in large size, if your bandwidth permits.
I took the shots in Continuous Mode on the Camera. This resulted in a capture of a Kite Blink.
This is the first time Ive seen a bird blink. It sat for around 2 minutes. Just as I got up to bring the tripod, it took off again.
FYI : Next Post will be on wild flowers.
