A COINCIDENCE ?

Please check out the blog preceding this on the  Flehman response.You will realize I was getting late and was in a hurry.

I was rushing for lunch to my ” Wildlife Comrade”  and  buddy Hema’s house. Had just stepped out when I saw a brief command  on my mobile, : “Bring your Camera”.

I ran back , grabbed the camera and literally threw  it inside the car.

The pictures that follow are entirely due to  this “last minute” command. Was it a mere coincidence? 

Picture that follows is straight off the camera and was taken near the flyover at the Hauz Khas Metro, New Delhi 

????????????????????????????????????
                                  Through the windshield of the car

As I was driving, the pictures were taken by  dear friend  Dr Richard Frazier . Was it a mere coincidence, that my dear friends Richard and  Catherine were travelling with me and that I had my camera.

Rhesus Monkeys as  pillion riders

This is an extremely unusual sight even in Incredible India. A coincidence?

Do observe the monkey is holding onto the driver of the motorcycle.

WE were really fortunate that New Delhi is unusually warm at 39 C. The hot weather compelled the monkeys to stop for a glass of water. Another element in the sequence of  coincidences?

The script in blue in the background of the featured image reads“Cold Water”, Rupees 2 per Glass.

 These  Rhesus Macaques (Macaca mulatta),or in  common parlance monkeys were “coincidentally” the pillion riders on this motorcycle spotted on the busy RING ROAD  in the metropolis of New Delhi.

AN AERIAL SURVEY OF A FOREST OF FLOWERS

The pictures that follow beautifully  describes the magic of nature through wildflowers.

This gorgeous tree was bursting with old rose colored flowers near the wetlands near Greater Noida. NOW IDENTIFIED as ATHEL PINETamarix aphylla 

For the drones buzzing in delight  it was  indeed a FOREST OF FLOWERS. The fragrance of the flowers was driving  them crazy with joy. They flew, jumped and cartwheeled all over the flowers.

flowers drive them beserk
flowers drive them berserk

The monsoon clouds and gentle breeze made the moment memorable.

The entire forest of flowers swayed in the gentle breeze teasing the bees, out on an aerial survey.

HUSH, WALLS HAVE EARS

A short drive off the Yamuna Expressway , in a farm at Village Parsaul in Greater Noida.

It seems the horse was actually listening to our conversation.

Do notice how the tips of the ears are turned inwards.

Walls do have ears
Walls do have ears
