During November we along with Raju family decided to visit Bandipur and Mudumalai forests. We found a place on the internet and booked it by paying full amount in advance. It was a disaster. The place was not as was shown on the net. We cut short it by one day and returned a day earlier.
Inspite of that the trip was not as bad as the place we stayed. We enjoyed black tea and my daughter A still asks for it now and then.
Enroute to Mudumalai via Bandipur we found a wild elephant grazing on the roadside. It never bothered to look at us.
Most of the photographs were taken by S (That is the advantage of the digital camera. I need not have to worry about cost of film and its developing etc. etc.,) and he has done a good job also.
Deers also were not bothered by our prersence. Here a deer looking at intruders in its territory.
The early morning walk we took was a refreshing one indeed. R and A slept at room I went along with S and Raju along with family joined us. It was a nature walk. S was explaining about spiders and demonstrating how they catch their prey. Here is a photo of Nephila maculata, wood spider.
I took a snap of a dragon fly resting on the fence.
While returning we visited Gopalaswamy Hill where the view is astoundingly beautiful.
The cool breeze on the hill made us to sit for a while and relax.
At Mysore S experimented taking a few snaps of the cathedral.
Though we had visited Ranganathittu bird sanctuary several times, we visited again. S is very much interested in Ornithology. For his age, he studies and remembers a lot of things about snakes and birds (donot ask about his school lessons!). His interest made him to take a lot of bird photos.
Our boat went near a crocodile which was relaxing on a rock and never bothered to greet us!
