The Copus Owl, well hidden, it was fun spotting it and the clicking, even better.

Butterflies 1

The pretty yellow and pastel green ones the common emigrant and mottled emigrant  find themselves comfortable in a mount of sambar deer dung, the common crow the brown plain looking fellow prefers foliage.

Dragon Flies

The dragon trio settling down for the night as the sun sets, the going light made it tough but gave it some character.

Cattle Egret

The cattle egret gets the name from the genus name in Latin which means herdsman, no other relation to cattle.
