I am currently staying at my parents house in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. They have recently moved to their new house and it is a bit cutoff from the hush bush of a city life. A major attraction in our garden is the Flame of the Forest/Tesu tree in full bloom. The area below it is blotted all over with the beautiful bright orange hook shaped flowers. I’ve been a fan of this tree forever and having it stand bright and beautiful right in front of my balcony is a pleasure beyond measure.
Anyways, thats not all this post is about. It is also about these very special birds that visit us every day . A flock of Brahminy Starlings – pale brown or orange mynah with a black cap, fly all over the tree looking for the sweetest flower, playing in pairs and just enjoying the tree in their own sweet way.
It pleases me to see how these birds are in perfect harmony with this tree, so much so that they are almost look a part. So, as part of the Weekly Photo challenge -Harmony, I am going to share a few images of the flames in our forest, the Brahminy Starlings enjoying the test tree.
Cheers & Joy, Always!
