    Wow! What colours! Who will not fall in love with this bird? I would love to see the bird in its habitat with a bit of wide angle. Also, if you have any vertical shot then please post. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi
    PS: I would love to hear your experiences in Latpanchar

    Thanks Sabyasachi....

    I was fortunate to get many shots of this bird, including mating shots. I will post some of them here. However, getting those shots was a challanging task for me. I had to go down the hill for quite a distance through very dense jungle. It seemed impossible to climb up again to my lodge.....need a regular exercise...

    I can't reiterate enough that safety is very important. At times to get an unique shot we forget that our life and limb can be in danger. So best is to take a deep breath and decide if we can safely get the shot and then proceed. We make mistakes when fatigue sets in.

    You are absolutely right. I didn't know how far I needed to walk to see that bird. I had similar and worse experience at Chandrataal lake.
