Kabini....Rajiv Gandhi National Park 18 and 191010
When one goes to Kabini (we usually stay in the beautiful JLR resort), one goes into the
Rajiv Gandhi National Park.
The forest area has its set of rules, and we, as naturalists, try to keep them:

Sighting and shooting is supplemented by lots of eating:
There are sometimes surprises even in innocuous places. Shreeram is encouraging Radha to look into the tree-trunk hole…at a massive Tarantula (pic later) inside!
Kunal is the Manager of the Kabini property, and was briefing us on sightings of birds on the campus and in the forest:

It was lovely to see the lush green of the paddy fields, and the haystacks:
Kabini….a very beautiful tributary of the Kaveri!
