Mom & KId

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 13 April 2019 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

I was rushing to the window every now and then to see if the Mom would lift her bum and let me take a shot of her eggs. No chance !Was I disappointed ? Yes .
But surprise of all surprises, I heard faint "cheeps" and I started rushing now to see the lil one. And lo !! It came out and I took a few quick shots. Very soon the Mom sensed the human presence near by and ushered the kid under her wings !! Aw!! Thank Heaven for small mercies. The zoom did not disappoint me !! I feel like a National Geography Photographer and am patting myself :))))))))))))))))))))))
