Jaisalmer Lake

I am here at the edge of the desert at Jaisalmer in Rajastan. This afternoon I went to the lake to see what was around it. Not much as it happened. Well, just a couple of things.

White-eared Bulbul
White-eared Bulbul (Pycnonotus leucotis)

I just love the deep orange background on this photo. It is not often you get such rich settings.

Purple Sunbird

What is going on with this Purple Sunbird? It looks like it has had an eruption of feathers out of his neck. I am going to consult the local experts.

House Crow

This House Crow was just sitting up perfectly so I had to photograph him.

Red-wattled Lapwing

These things can be really really annoying. Circling around screeching and hollering.

Eurasian Spoonbill
Eurasian Spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia)

I think this is the first time photographed in India. Formerly seen in Sri Lanka.

Ashy-crowned Sparrow-lark
Ashy-crowned Sparrow-lark (Eremopterix griseus)

Already seen at Point Calimere but this is a better photograph. Still not satisfactory but.

Jaiselmer Fort

A tourist shot. Not often I do these.
