The Deserts throw up life in an unusual and enchanting way.
The featured image shows young sheep ( Scientific name Ovis Aries) or lambs looking for food in a terrain which is bereft of grass. There is only sand as far the eye can see.
The gorgeous Red clothes of the Lady Shepherd provide a beautiful contrast to the stark and barren expanse of the desert.
The mother sheep or EWE with her udders full of milk seeks food herself as the hardy Milkweed shrub provides the backdrop .
The Lady Shepherd doubles up as a farmer and separates the chaff from the seed while the Mother sheep sunbathes in the glorious Winter Sun .
A close up shows up her beautiful ALL SILVER anklets, the Kejri tree and the Milkweed shrub.
The grain being separated is JOWAR , a millet which forms the staple diet of the desert people.
The photographs shared above were taken on the Sand dunes near Kichan or Keechan ( a lovely village famous for Demoiselle Cranes).
The Desert Safari was organized by THE KHURJA RESORT where I spent a few nights.
The Desert is however changing rapidly as electricity reaches every home in this desolate area. I did observe electric poles being installed.
