Malshej Ghat has a plateau, on which MTDC resort is built. In and around this resort, yellow flowers of "Nettle Leaved Wedelia" are present in good nos. Some of the patches are tens of meters of flowers. This makes a nice yellow canopy on ground. In between this canopy a black rock pops up.
Moving around this plateau, very pleasant tweets are heard. We started searching for the bird & found no. of pairs of "Crested Lark". Fortunate to spot this little "Crested Lark" on a black rock amidst flowers. It was an interesting scene & it took couple of shots to get this frame in camera.
The place I took this shot was on a slight slope & I was little below the bird giving a clear view. A very shy bird & it didn't allow me to come closer more than about 12-15 meters. Anyway ,could manage a decent environmental shot.
Hope you like & enjoy it.
