Weekend bird photography at Ranganathittu and Kokkare Bellur


It’s been about four months since we were planning to visit Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary and Kokkare Bellur. Well, quite obviously because these two places are famous for the migratory birds that flock here for breeding each year. 
So, this weekend, 30th Dec, 2012 to be precise, we decided to hit the road. First Kokkare Bellur, then Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary. Although this was a day trip, we broke it down into two blog posts. The only reason for doing that is for you(our most wonderful readers) to distinguish between the two places and the birds you can find there.

    1. Thank you very much Ajeeth. Well, the first picture(sunrise HDR) was processed with Photomatix and then processed in Photoshop. All the others were only processed in Photoshop.
