Park the car and further in car of Sheena, first pickup Prasanth and later on Kishan. With this the gang of 4 is complete again and we can go to find the breakfast hotel. A place well known to Prasanth and Kishan so no problem. New for me but it was a nice place and we were just in time as the crowd came in when we were having breakfast.
Continued to be in time for the early morning boats. Some betting about when we would arrive was going on, it didn't influence the driving by the way. So we arrived just after 9 at the Sanctuary.
Not the first but still very quite on the water, think we even were the first boat as the others took way more time to finalise and get into the boat.
And than see what we can get for the lens. First was not a bird but the waterlilies when we walked to the boat.
One of the main other "activities" we encountered were the crocodiles waiting for the birds to fly into their mouth. At least it seemed that way as they were al sitting perfectly still with open mouth which was definitely not for a beautiful performance of photographers or birds. Most of the time they even had the eyes closed. The eyes was for several of them the only item that really moved and told us I am still alive so be careful.
So after quite a long trip we landed and continued from the land area. Also looked at the rest of the area. Which has some nice plants several of these you see only in small versions in the Dutch living rooms.
I couldn't find a good spot and was in the end looking for some other strange birds.
Last part was heading back to Bangalore to be there before the Mysore rush to Bangalore would start. Luckily we still had time for a lunch stop to fill us up.
Overall another well spend day, which will get some follow up I expect.
