On the walking path past the Chowrasta in Darjeeling, I had taken a photo of these gentleman. Later we met them at Keventer’s Restaurant.

My dear wife being very patient while I was doing Bird Photography, and many times pointed out birds that I hadn’t seen yet!

Redbilled Leiothrix- Peking Robin-Nightingale- Babbler family-This was one of the birds that sat still long enough for me to get a photograph. I was using a Canon EF 7-300mm zoom lens.  It was shot at ISO 1250/150mm/f 5.6 and 1/400th of a second.  If I haven’t identified this bird correctly please let me know!

This is my 1800th post, so I decided to give a tribute to my wonderful wife, who has been a faithful supporter of my photography hobby.  In fact since I had pulled out my life savings ($55 USD), when we got married in 1969, I couldn’t afford the camera I wanted so she paid for it!! It was a Mamiya/Sekor SLR! She had been working for a year and had some income, so I married “into money!” 🙂   It hasn’t been the last time she has bought me equipment. Thanks, Darling for hanging in there with me!!

No, I didn’t buy these beautiful roses! They were on the table at the Restaurant in Siliguri where we had a snack before catching the bus for our journey back to Bangladesh.
