Birds of Anekal lake

Over the past many Sundays, I have been discovering and re-discovering the beautiful lakes of Bangalore and the remarkable birds and critters that inhabit there. 
Last week, I visited Anekal lake for the first time. 
Here's a photo tour...


The sky was so overcast that the Sun at 9 AM was looking like moon...

The showstopper of the day was the Pied Kingfisher. It hovers over the lake trying to locate fishes...


Once it locates a fish, it dives into the water with great speed...


It catches the fish...


And flies away...
