Another wonderful trip it was to the riverbed close to Mysore on our way to Bandipur. After waiting for quite a bit, these birds arrived one by one. I was thrilled when three were perched, never expecting a fourth one to appear. I really liked this moment where it almost looks like the fourth bird is pondering as to where to land.
