Painted Stork in flight, India

Ranganthittu Bird Sanctuary is located downstream of the Cauvery Dam in the outskirts of Mysore. It is a great place for wintering migratory birds and the Forest Department oversees the organization with commendable success.

After many years of wanderlust I visited the sanctuary last week. The place was swarming with migratory birds of all shapes, colors and calls. The air was abuzz with frenetic activity. Prime amongst the birds in terms of numbers were Open Billed Storks, Painted Storks, River Terns, Black Ibis etc. The occupancy rate was a mere 25 percent. The peak season with 100 percent occupancy may be a overwhelming experience.

The current lot of birds were from Australia, Japan, Nigeria etc as well as from inland India.

Hey Guys, I haven't posted in a really long time but I have been watching! =) I just recently purchaed a Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with a 28-80 AND 80-210 lense plus bag and accessories and all that good stuff! (Ebay..) Have any of you guys used this camera? I'm a huge Canon fan so i'm sure I will love it, just wondering if anyone had anything to say about it. But as to not leave you guys with one of those hidious text posts I will leave some recent photos. I was doing a piece in my Narrative, Series and Sequences class on self mutilation. The piece is an 8 page book on the 'life' of the razor. I shot 3 girls I will post the other 2 some other time, here is the first - Irene. Crit is always welcome!!! Thanks! Josie.
