On Saturday we decided to go back to see what more we could see at Lalbagh Botanical Gardens.
Wow! We saw so many new things including many new birds and many beautiful flowers.
The plant colours were vibrant.
You could see the domes of the city from the park.
This is a giant bees nest.
The bees appeared to be hanging onto something, though we couldn't tell what.
This is a "where's waldo" kind of picture.
Can you find the two birds called "Oriental White-eye"?
This is a "Red-whiskered Bulbul".
Hidden in the branches is an "Ashy Drongo".
This bird hanging upside down is a female "Purple Sunbird".
This little guy on the right is called "White-cheeked Barbet".
Isn't he pretty?
Can you see the whiskers on that fella?
This Cormorant has caught a fish.
This "Indian Pond Heron" doesn't look like he would have startlingly white wings, does he?
But it is a real surprise when you see him take off!
This is a Black Kite, so why isn't he black?
Still one of my favourites, the Purple Swamphen.
People at work
These fishermen have a whole bag of fish.
This man is working hard arranging the rocks on the bank of the lake.
There is a whole family of monkeys that live at the Park.
This young guy was running up the tree.
This monkey came running toward a couple who gave him a bag of chips.
He knew exactly how to open the bag of chips.
And he started eating them.
Actually, it looks like he is a little chubby and might have had a few too many bags of chips,
don't you think?
Elder & Sister Wigg
We didn't even see the Rose Garden last time we were here!
There is a giant clock in the center of this part of Lalbagh and it was surrounded with little Disney dwarf characters. It was pretty funny.
And the clock had the correct time!
(That's an inside joke, as the Indians roll their rr's and it sounds so cute when they say it!)
We love our work in the office, but it's such fun to get out of the office and see some of the local sights.
Elder Wigg has made a friend, as he seems to do everywhere we go. He is just good with people, as he likes them, and they seem to know it.
