Four ... fabulous ... fiery ... flitting
species ... at a bird bath in Himalayas ...
Once ...
There was a lovely
bird bath ...
... kept at the
forest-edge ... at
6500 feet in pristine
Himalayan locale ...
... there
was lull on the
bird-bath for most
of the day ...
however ...
... at quarter to four
Then ...
it all changed ...
albeit ... briefly
There was storm at the
Hammam ... seven
species of small ...
... hyperactive birds
descended ... three of
them rather less
frequently sighted ...
It all lasted for
barely three and a
half minutes ...
More individual and
group images of
the event will follow ...
Some of the action
may be
enjoyed in this
video-clip presented at
a slower pace ...
