The red-eyed cutie

Celebrated Shakespeare’s birthday recently and found out that he invented the phrase : Green eyed monster’ among many others, many of which I thankfully knew about and many others I did not. I always thought Lewis Carroll first used : “Off with his head!” But no, that was also our dear Bard’s invention. Anyway, somehow…

The eagle’e eye

One of my favorite photos. The best part is I forgot I took it. That’s the second b&w one where the eagle is looking right at me. The other I do remember taking, notice the difference in my Always sloppy and sometimes present watermarks. It is a Harpy Eagle, most majestic eagle I have ever…

Where yellow goes to die: Green

Strangled red

One of the buildings in Ross Island, an island in the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago. Until the second world war Ross Island housed an European Infantry.

Hermit on a beach

On the white sands of Elephant beach, Andamans, i found this tiny hermit crab trying to get away. This maybe a maroon hermit crab because it is orange (oh! it took me a while to see how that may sound haha, whoever named them was not that into colors). Hope I did not startle it…
