Continuing with my wallow-in-the-mud-moment, I'd decided to try and get up close with what wanders in the long grass...
On that small expedition:📷
I'd lost my shoe in the mud twice! 👟
Then got the 4wd bogged🚙
but saved myself😎 (I'll take autographs later! )
Aaaand I had a fabulous adventure just from stepping through the backdoor.🚪
Where I also spotted:
a pair of pigs 🐷
a small herd of water buffalo (of the big-horns-wild kinda buff),🐃
lots of birdlife, 🐦
a couple of pythons. 🐍
of bugs. 🐛
Remind me, why did I do this?🤦
Coz it's a freaking jungle out there!🌴
⭐So, how many creatures will you find on the other side of YOUR back door? 🔭
I think this little writer should've stayed seated safely behind my keyboard and sent my characters on some adventure. Oh wait, let's just chalk this up to #research ... Ha!

Team ARRC was at Cisco Sustainability & Community Impact Carnival today. A big thanks to Cisco Campus, Bangalore for organizing this event and encouraging their employees to become more aware of environment and sustainability initiatives in the community.
We were pleasantly surprised by the level of interest shown by people who visited our stall towards environment and wildlife related causes. We are very encouraged by the response and we hope that more of such awareness drives will further sensitize people towards the pressing environmental and ecological issues of our time. We sincerely wish that the increased awareness through such events, will eventually translate into lifestyle changes at an individual and policy changes at a community level leading us towards a more equitable and sustainable future for one and all.
I think there has only been one time that we didn't see an Anhinga chillin' in this spot

The perfect hoverers. Kestrels fly into, and at the same speed as, the oncoming wind – the current of air passing over its wings provides the lift it needs. To maintain the lift, it extends the tips of its wings and fans its tail feathers, and if the wind drops it will flap its wings to increase air movement. A kestrel’s feathers are better able to withstand the effects of bending (by being stiffer) compared with other falcons, and research has shown that the birds cope with the energy demands of hovering by including tiny pauses, stretching their necks forwards to offset being blown backwards, while keeping their heads in position!
