Co-existence...

Last December, as we were visiting folks back home in Assam(India)we had to visit our favourite Kaziranga National Park, which is a World Heritage Site.The park hosts two-thirds of the world's Great One-horned Rhinoceroses..
These shots below are however taken from the road so we were not able to get close shots of the birds but we just wanted to share what we saw and it really a great feeling to see all birds and animals co-existing in nature.We also did not want to crop the pictures and take away the beauty...Hope you all enjoy seeing them as much as we did...
This is the road to Kaziranga.

















Mustard fields all around...




















On our way back we stopped wherever we spotted wildlife...we first spotted this One Horned Rhino.If you take a closer look at the pictures below you maybe able to spot the swamp deer, some ducks as well the Cattle Egret.






































While the wild water buffaloes laze in the morning sun the monkeys(are they???)roam around...


















A Spot-billed Pelican is near by...



















Great Adjutant Stork in flight...
































We also spotted this Lesser Adjutant Stork along with the Asian Openbill Stork and the Cattle Egret.























This picture here has has Greater and Lesser Adjutant Storks, Cattle Egrets, Indian Pond Heron,Wooly necked Stork and maybe a Serpent Eagle...


















And finally the water lilies..

  11. I know this post is all about birds and I enjoyed each of your photos but the one-horned rhino is fascinating. I haven't seen one like that with the wonderful deep folds, as if it's carrying a cloak over it, or armadillo like even.

  15. What a lovely visit you had and I have enjoyed seeing it through your eyes. I think the juxtaposition between the mighty Rhino and the diminutive Cattle Egret is somehow very touching! I also loved the Water Lilies, they looked like a painting, so pretty and colourful. Thank you for sharing your visit :-)

  20. What an enchanting place Shantana. Your photographs made me feel as if I were there. The Adjutant Storks were so intriguing that I had to look them up. I was amazed to find that both of these birds are threatened species! The Greater Adjutant Stork is listed as "endangered" and the Lesser is listed as "vulnerable." You are very fortunate to even see these wonderful birds and I want to thank you for showing us those gorgeous shots of the Greater Adjutant in flight!
