Eventide- 10

Sundown at Point Reyes

These shots were taken at the Point Reyes National Park, California. Very cool evening breeze making it so very enjoyable .

A clear sky made it possible to capture the dipping orange ball, till it disappeared into the vast expanse of the ocean, leaving an etherial afterglow!

Common Myna

Common myna

Groups or pairs of Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis) regularly visit my garden or backyard; they can be seen foraging on the road in front and the nearby properties.

This particular one was of interest as it frequented the backyard and moved in circles. A close encounter showed the reason for this circular motion… it was blind in one eye! May be a fight between the members in a group or a disease.

I noticed the disability as it flew down from the palm tree where it was perching.

I have seen it always alone and its absence is noticed since a month.

Common myna is considered a flourishing species. The prefix ‘common’ distinguishes it from ‘Jungle myna’.
