It's a brilliant idea LizaπŸ™‹ . .

I picked up this post way back from 2015 coz it was a 'Pure' image. My daughters had not shown me the power of PS yet and so I had no clue abt editing, layers, masks, gradient maps et.al. .
.

And to be honest, I did enjoy the eyeballs it caught, way back in 2015. .
.
Here's to more Happy times 🍸

It's never easy to spot and stop when you are on a group safari! Like all wild life safaris, the rules of this safari too were very straightforward! No getting off the vehicles, no loud conversations and above all - Don't have any Expectations!

Suddenly the caravan of forest vehicles stopped, all engines were killed and there were some animated hand signal exchange between the drivers. When the whispers finally reached us, there was a sudden adrenaline rush. .

The drivers were all looking up at the trees. The monkeys wereΒ  creating a big ruckus, holding on to the branches and shaking them vigorously. Along with the drivers we all used the triangulation method, following the gaze of the monkeys! .

Apparently a leopard was in the thicket.
.

After a good wait of good 20 minutes or so and an unusual pin drop silence of humans, I did the unexpected. .

CLICK! .

How could I miss this bird in hand for the leopard in the bush! .

This Crested Kingfisher took preference over the suspected leopard. .

And the looks I got - oh Gawd, that's another story! 😱😱
.

In my defense : I was merely following the rules! 'No Expectations' πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

How Green was my Valley!
Have you seen the 1941 epic?
If not, give it a shot, it's in black and white.

. Cause and Effect theory! .
.
Effect : Incorrigible Careless Nincompoop! πŸ‘€πŸ‘€.
.
Cause : With my eyes dug deep in the viewfinder I faintly heard these volleys of objectives directed towards me coz I didn't dry the dogs after their periodic bath, instead got distracted shooting the drops on their brush. For obvious reasons, like any spoilt set of hairy mammals, they ran, went berserk shaking themselves dry, INDOORS! 😲 .
.

Facts: Dogs can shake themselves dry under 4 seconds and get rid of 70% of water. One large furry dog can lose upto 750ml of water. Two can upto 1500ml. I have 3 dogs, a bruised ego and now I can't find my tripodπŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ‘…
.
.
Conclusion : 'A dog is a man's best friend' and 'Men can multitask too' are most likely myths.πŸ˜‰

Wish you all a fantastic new week dear friends!!!

Before our hands met midair, for the high five, we were thrown out and landed flat on wet grass!! Sometimes I think they invented pubs for idiots like us !!!!!

''It's raining for the 3rd straight day in a row. My wife looks really depressed. She keeps staring through the window. If the rain doesn't stop tomorrow I'll have to let her in!''

Well, this joke didn't go down well with her !!! Hope the water drops on grass blades go down well with you!

As a kid have you ever put your ear to a railway track to listen to the rumbling of an approaching train!? .
.
While capturing this shot of a butterfly, sitting on a watering hose reminded me of those times.
.
.
For the onlookers I looked liked a crazy person sprawled on the lawn, whereas I felt like a commando, inching up with my gun trying to avoid the lens rubbing against the hose, lest the butterfly hears the rumble ;-) .
Wish you all a great new week and hope the ongoing cyber-attack does not cripple your routine.

When the Sky is angry,
The Sun is livid,
The Terrain is vivid,
Your knees buckle,
You barely have strength,
To reach for the dslr,
You find a cloud cover and,
Life happens!!!!
