The first thing that struck us at the Denwa Backwater Escape were the number of butterflies and dragonflies fluttering around.
The colours and their patterns had us bemused and fascinated, little though we knew about them.
Over the next couple of days, our guides rattled off names and species, though I remember only a few today. Which is why, I am settling for showing you the wide variety we saw, minus names and details!
When it came to birds, however, we remember a lot more of the names. After all, we were seeing some for the very first time!

Whether we were walking around the resort, venturing into the jungle, taking a boat ride on the river, or simply sitting near the backwaters, there were plenty of birds to be seen.
We saw over 50 varieties of birds, without really going in search of them! These pics are just a few of those I managed to capture!

|This Black Winged Kite eluded us all day, but settled on a tree in front of our window, just as we were getting ready to leave!|
I have created a collage of the photos simply to reduce the number of photographs in this post. For those of you who want to look at each pic in detail, here is a slideshow…

This was in November, before the migratory birds had arrived. You can imagine what it would be like now!
I visited Denwa Backwater Escape in November 2014 on an invite from Pugdundee Safaris to explore the Satpura Wildlife Sanctuary. You can read more about the trip on my other posts about the experience.
