Indian Ringnecks are native to Asia and Africa and can be seen in the forests or arid environments.
We captured a few of them during our annual vacation to Ahmedabad,India. We were pleasantly surprised to see these avian variety in abundance in the army cantonment area.
It appeared they were happy to pose with their variant moods and postures.
Wow ! u look pretty.
I beg to have a different view of the world!!!

We drove down 500 km from Muscat to reach Shana.The crossing to the island is via a ferry connection from Shana on the mainland.We had a difficult time as we were not sure from which side the barge would leave as all this depends on high water to make the landing.We spent quite sometime waiting on the barge and the complex manoeuvring to get all cars in.
These are the barges that ferry us to the island.
A glimpse of Masirah Island from the sea.
We finally reached our destination after being
on the barge for almost two hours.
The next morning we decided to go fishing in
the misdst of the sea.However the fishes were
fishy and eluded us.
Enough of you!Let's go...
Back to work on our fishing boat.
I'll be on your cruet set after they clean me
The journey ended with a promise for another

We were there only for a two day visit due to our hectic schedule.Every trip we have made so far we have always been blessed with rains.However, this time we did not get to see the sunshine at all so we only managed to get a few shots from the ferry we were travelling in.
Luck is never on our side so we are just happy
with the tiger pug marks and still hoping that
one day we will see the tiger.

I was lucky enough to be able to visit this mesmerizing place though the stay was very short and I felt guilty for not bringing my wife and daughter along(but next time surely it will be with my family and hopefully that will be for the African Safari). I was fortunate enough to have experienced both the African sun and rain.
This is part of the hotel where I stayed.
Just look at the reflection of the blue sky.
As the rains poured we rushed for shelter and
I managed to get a few shots of the African rain.
I must say no matter where I am I love the rain.
I was only able to get shots of the tamed cheetas.
Hopefully next time it will be the wild ones.
