It's that time of the year when you start keeping this flower in a little more shade and a little more watering is required.Also,now that flowers are coming off the plant,you can start collecting leaves (to dry them and use it for treating inflammation/acne) and seeds for next season.
Here's a major highlight of this season, A beautiful and magnificent migratory species of duck named "Tufted Duck". These ducks are named after the tuft (long hair) they have on the head. Tufted ducks breed in Eurasian Countries and winter in the India and its subcontinents, every year. Many people know Khadakwasla as a tourist point, but for birders, they see it as a good habitat for many duck species. Tufted Ducks migrate to khadakwasla dam every year during the winter season. a flock of 8-10 individuals was seen in the central part of the backwater. It was a wonderful sighting to kick off the year. Wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
I went to Ngong Hills a while back to try and catch the fog-engulfed windmills. Fortunately, the fog did come rolling in from the valley below but disappeared within a few minutes.
I had the final shots in mind and my settings were dialled in, so even with the limited window, all I had to do was focus on composing and shooting.
I didn't get all the shots I wanted so I'll be heading back up there soon. .
