Weekend birding around Bannerghatta

Well, a small excursion around the forests of Bannerghatta area avoiding the national park and some birding where we were. I joined Amit and Karthik on this excursion as my team members were preoccupied with other work.

Elephant infested areas and we were lucky not to bump in them but got to see their presence all around. The butterflies were numerous, but I had no patience running behind them :)
A long bike ride after quite some time and the cameras were finally out after nearly a month or so...
