The Hunt for the Blood Orchid

And so our hunt began. The terrain was the same ,the route that I passed by last week but Siva having to cross some tough terrain on his Classic. 

But as we reached there, the terrain was getting more and more difficult.  It was not going to be easy to get the orchid.
It took us a tough 3 hrs to climb to the top while having to cross innumerable streams on the way.

Finally, we had to stop at this point. Not having the heart to get rid of this guy, we got back empty handed. 

 Am back to my routine these days. Doing what I like and liking what I do :)

All that fly...

For everyone who stays in and around Chennai, the Satish Dhawan Space center is a place worth going. This is the place that houses the ISRO. Close by ,is a lake, that attracts migratory birds.The road that leads to this place is scenic. Once it started raining, the road was a pleasure to drive. For now, let the pictures do the talking.

God's Own Country

Though it was a very short visit, Kerala is indeed God's own country . I was cursing my luck for not carrying the D70.
