Nature has a way of portraying the different facets of life, the contrast between being full of life and bereft of the same. Its amazing how both these perspectives are in the same location . Sankey lake, Bangalore .

    Yes, nature in full cycle.
    Are these egrets or herons, the birds in the first picture?
    I Corkscrew State Park in Florida, there’s one huge tree, really a giant of a tree, with dozens of stork’s nests. The birds were chattering so loudly, one could here them from a mile away. Standing near the tree, the noise was deafening.

    It is interesting how every part of nature lives in perfect harmony…. even though the branches are bare, they still give shelter to the birds….
