It was my 16th visit of Ragihalli, whenever I saw that place I see one small lake in Ragihalli but never able to locate this. The secret got opened when Deepa revealed the location of secret lake which was just a wow place for birding.

Who welcomed us – White lotus… My first view of white lotus in Life. It was again a cloudy day and the life-cycle of nature didn’t revealed lot of birds for us, though we were hearing tremendous of it. Putting the cruel mind of photographer apart, I felt very happy in the paradise.

Swallows were running here and there and then I saw them finally sitting. It was a delight to see the juvenile swallow too.
