“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.”
– Joseph Campbell
“For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it.”
– Jacques-Yves Cousteau
These are some of the treasures I stumbled upon last week. Some at home, some away from home, and some really further away from home.
The 12 year-old and I drove to the Aravalli forests and hills, by the Bhuvaneshwari temple; last Sunday morning. This place is a bird watchers paradise. I have been lucky enough to spot jackals here on my cycling jaunts.
The week before that we were at the Lost Lake, Mangar forests and had the good fortune of some rare wildlife sightings. All the good pictures are on the 12 year-olds Canon. I hope to be able to share those with you by next week, once I figure the transferring bit to my Mac.
Most of my own pictures are shot on my iPhone 11 since January this year. And the earlier ones are all from the iPhones I’ve used in the past. Guess I’m more used to the phone now. And I leave the professional photography to the 12 year-old who I’d like to give credits to for all her canon shots above.
I’d also like to thank Gaurav Dhotre, a very talented naturalist at Pugdundee Safaris, for these incredible tiger shots. It’s been my good fortune to curate content for Pugdundee Safaris for sometime now, and witness wildlife and nature up close and personal.
Since it is International Tiger Day on 29 July, this is just another reminder to do our bit to protect all these special inhabitants who are an integral part of our ecosystem. Saving them will save the tigers too.
Forever in gratitude for this awe-inspiring planet of ours. And these nature jaunts we get to experience. They make my heart smile and my spirits soar.
Do you know why International Tiger Day is celebrated?
What is it that you do to save the wild life around your home?
Have a great week, you all!
And don’t forget to do your bit for this magical planet.
Love, Light and Laughter <3 <3
