Lizards Seen in Hyderabad in South India

Lovely Lizards Seen in Deccan Plateau OK the first word that comes to your mind when you think “LIZARD” Or “REPTILE”? I am sure half of you would not even read further after saying a BIG YUKK 🙁 🙁 . I mean most of us can only think bad about lizards. But let me ask you this: How can something created by Mother Nature be ugly and without purpose?

Kondapur Botanical Garden With GHAC Nature

  A Morning Visit to Kondapur Botanical Garden with GHAC Nature I had participated in the  first bird watching trip organized by GHAC long back, it was in Kondapur botanical garden, Hyderabad, at that  point the botanical garden was not in very good shape due to extreme summer.  Sunbird Enjoying Nectar I was pleasantly surprised when we visited again with GHAC nature in the morning.

Karma Chameleon

I started my day with the hopes of capturing a few photos of the elusive dark blue Humming bird that I have been spotting every day in the flower bed. But it has been proving too fast to be captured on my phone the only equipment I have when I come down every morning to drop my daughter for her school bus.
