  1. Qutub minar’s top picture is awesome, never saw Qutub minar picture from that angle before.

  2. If i were living in a city and turned into a bird i would fly far away and not look back i i would forever stay a bird and be free never to be told waht to do and never ever fenced in again

  3. MWatched a pair of WESTERN KINGBIRDS chasing a RED TAILED HAWK right over the town here in NORTHERN CALIFORNIA where i live just one of those dramas in nature you dont often see everyday
