Haserghatta (Bengaluru) and Ranganthittu (Mysore)

Year end of 2011 brought an awaiting trip to locations near Bengluru and Mysore, which are regarded as  photographers paradise. I am too late to write the report and add details of the visit, but I must thank to Alok Bhave who planned this trip and without his company I couldn't have enjoyed the non-stop travel and birding around Bengluru. We covered Hebbal lake, Hesarghatta, Karanji Lake and Ranganthittu Bird Sanctuary in two days....Apart from lifer of blue faced malkoha there were several beautiful species which we could enjoy during the trip.

Sharing below the best shots taken during the trip....
I hope you would enjoy them..
