On the Road Again:Ganeshgudi

With neck deep in work for over a month, I was looking to head out of the city to quieter and greener pastures in search of some beautiful winged creatures. Asked around a bit and as it usually happens everybody seemed busy.. So decide to head out solo to Ganeshgudi. Had driven down twice before .. The long 500km drive is worth all the effort once you reach.. The serenity and the variety of birds one can capture is just amazing..Some shots from there.
