White-throated Kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis) also known as the White-breasted Kingfisher or Smyrna Kingfisher by Pranav Bhasin

When the winter in Gurgaon was fading, I found this Kingfisher neatly tucked up inside a tree around our apartment.

As I moved to the other side to capture the Kingfisher, the Kingfisher turned its head to one side intently staring at something. I was not quite sure what it was.

And then, I saw a squirrel crawl on the branch where the Kingfisher was seated, one step at a time. Both the Squirrel and the Kingfisher were fearless, but finally the Squirrel won and Kingfisher flew off the branch.

Red Vented Bulbul by Pranav Bhasin

Until I started birding, I never saw them even once. Now that I am, they seem to be all around the place :).

Notice the red color under its tail – that is where Red Vented Bulbul gets its name.

Learning To Fly by Pranav Bhasin

No one is as fearless and as eager to learn new stuff as kids. Saw this little girl learning to cycle in our compound. It was a chilly winter, she would fall and get up to try it again.

Found this beauty getting some shade in the trees planted opposite my apartment complex in Gurgaon.

Gurgaon Through My Lens

This is my tribute to Gurgaon, the concrete jungle. The place is so full of buildings and vehicles that there is almost no space to walk. If you are not inside a car, you certainly don’t want to be outside it either.
