It was Sunday, and I was leaving for Linkoping in the afternoon….so we decided (after clearing up a lot of ticketing mess) to go for a nice ramble, with a picnic lunch.
We started by watching this young
Next, we watched a flock of
TITS (Blue or Great? the debate rages between Sumana and me)
and sitting on the trees...
showed itself in the leaf-litter:
turned over the leaf-litter in typical Thrush fashion.
I spotted Cupid, out in the spring sunshine:
I realized that I was not the only one watching the birds:
He then stepped out of hiding, that black beauty:
Even "pests" look beautiful sometimes!
I love the way tourists and cyclists are given importance:
I did feel welcome!
We chose a spot near a magnificient pile:
Family photography began happening:
Lunch was not fast enough for some people:
A healthy, yummy dessert!
Having seen Cupid, it was appropriate that I look up into the sky, and saw this sunbow and the arrow of a jet contrail:
Quite aptly, too, there were star-crossed clouds!
Advik, whom I have christened Laddu Kumar, was looking particularly sweet.
We came back home, I finished my packing, and Deepak lugged my luggage all the way to the bus stop…but that’s the next post!
