The Whispers of the Whiskers

Kolappa Venkatesh

It was a humid afternoon, and there was not much wildlife to be spotted during the safari. I was keeping my guests engaged saying that as it gets cooler, the sightings would be better. I was near the president point, where the guests were watching an interaction between an egret and a cormorant.
