Life and Light

Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God. … once in awhile, try taking a walk through the woods. Its important to wash your spirit clean.

Flight? Fight? or a Dance?…

Flight? Fight? or a Dance?… isn’t it beautiful?

I like birds. Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?

Mangoose

Mangoose are eaten up from nose to tail with curiosity, from birth they are told to ‘run and find out’. No one taught them how ferocious a Cobra could be, instead they just got matured with bravery.

That’s how i would advice every parent to deal with their kids, find and make opportunities for your kids to improve their instincts naturally and most of the things they could learn from their own experiences not from our mistakes. Its most important that we need to convince them that we are there to guide, protect and support when they are in need.

Interesting Facts:
The female mongoose tends to produce only one litter of pups a year, but she is able to produce another litter if for some reason, the first litter is lost. The young mongooses are weaned at around 6 weeks old, and the baby mongooses then begin to forage with their mother until they are 4 months old. The male mongoose babies will leave their mother when they are around 6 months old, while the female mongoose babies will stay longer, sometimes even permanently.

Clouds

Happiness is like a cloud, the more you spread it and share it, the more beautiful your life becomes. Its not a massive single cloud that makes the sky beautiful, but a whole sketch of tiny flakes floating around in sweet blue.

Killer eyes

“You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus”
Be honest, whats worrying you? just the eyes or your thoughts about the animal which is having it?

Water Lily

“I think that the best kind of change, is the change that comes from the inside and begins it’s way out until it emerges on the outside; a change that is born underneath then continues and spreads until it has reached the surface. That’s a true change. A powerful change. And I have found that while we are emerging, changing into something glorious; it is actually us becoming who we really are. A water lily is born underneath the water, inside the soil at the bottom of the river or lake. And the water lily has always been a water lily for that whole time that it was sprouting out of the wet soil, reaching up through the dark water towards the sunlight, stretching and grasping for the surface; where it then buds and blooms on the outside in the sunshine. It doesn’t bud and bloom on the surface and then try to reach down below into the soil.”

Crowd ‘n d Wild


Largest, heaviest, muscular and the most powerful wild cattle on the planet; Indian Wild Gaur hold a special place as they are bigger and less aggressive than Cape Buffalo.

HGL-Indian-Gaur family

They stands as tall as 7.2 feet and average weight is 650 to 1,000 kg (1,430 to 2,200 lb), while large bull could easily weigh up to 1,500 kg (3,300 lb) Indian Wild Gaur provides an important food source for only one large apex predator The Tiger. Even then, there are more cases of tigers being killed by Gaurs, than Gaurs being killed by tigers. They live in herds of around 30-50 members, and they gestate for around 280 days. Herds are typically led by the oldest female, while males are mostly nomads that wander in search of females. In the herd the young are typically protected fiercely, as the large adult females will form a circle with heads and horns facing outward to protect the young from possible attack by Tigers. An unusual behaviour observed when a tiger was sensed by a herd, they form in an ancient human military tactic called a phalanx, and drove it off in a steady march toward the unfortunate tiger while lined up.

Speed


Speed… it is thrill, but can kill

Speeding is fun, but at any level is dangerous.

A matured and responsible driver would be aware of the ‘stopping distance’, a simple truth about speeding; The faster you go, the longer it takes to stop and the harder you hit, Even small increases in speed could have terrible consequences, the difference could be a matter of life or death. Around half of all speed-related fatalities happen at just 10km/h or less above the speed limit

‘One’ subject to photograph for the rest of your life

Its high time we humans learn that saving beautiful nature and peaceful wildlife is critical to our own happiness and quality of life, maybe then we’ll start thinking of doing something about it.

Beauty of nature and the life
This could be my only preferred subject to photograph for the rest of my life if I get a chance to pick one forever.

Lessons from Wild Flowers

Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out values all the utilities of the world.

It was one of the most beautiful places in kerala called Gavi and i was overlooking a beautiful open valley with an ocean of many little blue wild flowers. While i sat down i saw this little fellow with not many colours, but still stand bold and beautiful with a gorgeous background of thick green mountains and sky far way.

Yes, it is important to be who you are not what others want you to be. Stay positive and stand strong. How beautiful it is the way Lord teach us many things through his beautiful little creations in the nature.
