On a recent birding trip to Valley School, I learnt a few important lessons in patience. The birds were many, but photographs few. The foliage, the restlessness of the birds and my incompetence all contributed to the lack of good bird photographs.
Fortunately, the lack of cooperative birds, brought to my attention the flowers that grow wild, particularly during the monsoon. I know absolutely nothing about these flowers, except that I found each of them breath-takingly beautiful.
This is a Passion Flower - partially opened. We would never seen this amazing looking flower, had we not stopped to look at a sun bird near by.
This was a tiny pink flower that was growing just on the road side. It looked very delicate and was beautifully placed.
Often in our haste, we pass by many such beauties everyday. Do stop and have a look at nature's art, it is well worth the effort.
