Laughing Dove or Little Brown Dove

My in-laws were in Jaipur for a brief period, and that was where we began our summer vacation. While the house was in an area far from any places of interest, we found plenty of things to interest us.... especially birds, which offered lots of scope for trial and error with my brand new camera!! Here are some of my first attempts....

This is quite a common type of dove, known as the Laughing Dove all over the world, but apparently known as the Little Brown Dove in India. (at least according to Wikipedia!!)

  2. WoW!! Such wonderful captures with your new camera! The bird looks so happy to pose for you. :)Did Samhith take these shots or was it you? And which camera have you taken? I am myself thinking to buy one.

    1. Thanks Arti!! I have got myself a Nikon P 510.. huge zoom but not dslr... perfect fit for me since i dont think i can handle a dslr with samhith :D and no, he isnt allowed to handle my new toy yet :D though he cant wait to!!

    2. these super zooms are a blessing in disguise for many who can't fiddle around too much with those lenses and dslr's. I too used one for more than a year before hitching on to a dslr!

    3. Oh yes, Santosh!!! it is certainly easier than lugging around a dslr.. esp with a kid to manage too!!! have been telling samhith that i will give him this one when i buy a dslr, but cant see that happening too soon :D
