IN THE MIDST OF TREES

Life in a forest revolves around trees.

The pictures that follow say so loud and clear.

The Cheetal or Spotted Deer ( Axis Axis) rests on a bed of leaves in the midst of trees.

Listen carefully, the Stag is saying something to the langurs above ? Watch how the sunlight filters through the trees.

Talking to me?
                                                          Quiet please, Siesta time

Our ancestors the Langurs ( Semnopithecus dussumieri) or Hanuman Langurs    in their tree house.

This Hanuman  Langur  hides  amongst the leaves of a tree  and keeps a careful lookout for predators. Their alarm calls  indicate a Tiger is close at hand.

A grove of Jamun (Syzygium cumini )   trees provides a perfect playground for these peacocks

( Pavo cristatus) .

New friendships in the thick of a forest.

A dove ( can you spot it ? )  keeps a Woolly Necked Stork (Ciconia episcopus)  company.

The descendants of the apes try to make a “home,  of a tree” .
