Raptor - 111
This lucky close
encounter happened at
Keoladeo ...
... as our breakfast
wasn't ready yet ...
we decided to do a
quick recce of the
area ...
... soon as we
came out of the gate
of that historical
Royal hunting lodge
of yore ... we found
this handsome guy
sitting on top of a
mid sized tree ...
... after giving
some good portrait
shots he took off ...
spooked by Treepie and
Jungle Babblers ...
