Last Thursday of April - did that seem speedy to you?


Silver filigree jewel-work created this representation of Arjuna's chariot in which he cowered before being given the teaching by Sri Krishna, known as the Bhagavad Gita.

The lighting did a natural job of making this look suitably 'Last Thursday-ish', all I did was use the B&W function. Taken with the little Canon 8mp borrowed pocket cam.

This motley-looking duo appear to be magpies - I am guessing they are fledglings, as they do not have the crisp 'bib and tucker' look of the adults...

...then again, they could be crow youngsters;

OORRRR.. (horror of horrors), could they be 'Magcrows'???

One of a series of abstracts of decorative walls, shot during my return to Sandeepany, Mumbai. I didn't take the Fudge with me. Borrowed the father's little pocket Canon, 8mpx, 5x zoom. It did enough.

Was very excited when this flock of migrating Fieldfares stopped on the beech tree in the back yard last autumn! They hold 'at risk (red)' status according to the RSPB. Was photographing upwards, against the morning light and with the Fudge's lens stretched to full through the kitchen window. Not bad for all that!
