Jaunt to Jakkur lake

Good weather is upon us, bringing with it delightful serenity to Bangalore. Sunday morning, my wife and I decided to take full advantage of it and visit Jakkur lake for a photo expedition. Here's a photo tour...



We could hear lots of birds tweeting nearby. The first to be spotted was an Ashy Prinia...





Spotted Dove foraging in the bushes...








Kadam trees were in bloom...


Beautiful Kadam flower...


Here's a closeup...


The jogging/walking track is being renovated. The road roller makes a sweet prop for a portrait...





The place has been colonized by Passion Fruit vine...


A macro shot of the Passion flower...





Purple Swamphen...



Patterns on a musk melon...






A female Purple-rumped sunbird can do lovely acrobatics...


A male Purple-rumped sunbird is equally good at circus...


And... here I am... this is me...
