Thanks for your compliment Sharath. In my hundreds of safaris to the forests in Muthunga, Tholpetty, Nagarhole, Bandipur, BRT, Mudumalai this was the only time I saw one which strutted the feathers like this.

@Riju those were some awesome shots. I kept looking at it. Click away.

@ Cryus are you sure those two shots were from chail & shimla - Cause the mountains look exactly the same, the mountain on the right in the first pic looks like one on the left in the second.

Didn't know that a Crab could look so mean, yet so amazing in its detail. Great shot man. (foot note: was it crab curry after the shoot )

Aren't these telephoto shots, the crab might take a crack at the lens if you try macro.
