….in the heart of the capital. Yes, I’m still in Delhi. My son was not well for a week and I’m staying back to take care of his diet (mainly). He’s all right now and is going back to college, thanks to all the care he received from my cousin Sujoy, and his wife, Ajita.
The other day I accompanied them to the Eco-park at San Martin Marg at Chanakyapuri. That’s where Sujoy plays golf and Ajita works out at the gym. I went off to see what wildlife I could capture within the park. The park has many feathered visitors as well as squirrels. It was difficult to photograph the birds so I gave up and went looking for butterflies instead.
A dragonfly I found on the fringe of the park. I don’t think I’ve photographed this kind before.
The same kind of beetle I’d photographed the other day. An entire generation of these beetles were merrily munching on a clump of ruellia plants.
King Crow? I’m not too sure about this butterfly’s name.
The Plain Tiger butterfly was on its back. I’d never captured them like this before.
Another orange/black beetle on a vine that grows wild all across the country. Back home we see brown ones and it’s interesting to see how vividly coloured the beetles are here in Delhi.
