India Nature Watch - Monsoon Magic | Amboli

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 04:51:20 -0700

The rain gods continued to bless us with the seemingly everlasting shower, as we stepped out onto the road outside our base in Amboli. Shivering in the rain without a raincoat, I stood watching the clouds engulf the mountains in the distance, spellbound by the beauty of the place. A sudden cry "CAT SNAKE!!!". Flying rain-covers and hurtling bags was next. A blast of camera flashes and torches followed before the snake decided it had had enough and slithered into the dark, silent woods. Luckily, amidst the chaos and the rush of finding this elusive specimen, I managed to get this image of the stunned snake trying to sense what all the commotion was about. Do check out

India Nature Watch - Take off - mudskipper

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 08:06:32 -0700

" ... looks like this mudskipper thinks it can fly, as it takes off from its muddy base ! The tide was out and so were the mudskippers. They seemed to be everywhere and their activities can be riveting. They are quick and very acrobatic, moving on mud with their fins. Their interactions, especially while defending territories or courting can be spectacular. It is during such encounters that one sees them in their full regalia ... and with their bulging stalked eyes, dorsal fins unfurled and the fluorescent spots on their bodies, they look quite pretty. I have often spent a lot of time observing them whenever I have visited Shivadi mudflats and this is one mudskipper moment which I really love!" Mudskippers are amphibious fish and can be described as being "fully terrestrial for some portion of the daily cycle". They use their pectoral and pelvic fins to walk on land. They typically live in intertidal habitats and exhibit unique adaptations to this environment that are not found in most intertidal fishes, which typically survive the retreat of the tide by hiding under wet seaweed or in tide pools. They are an important prey base in the ecosystem. It is the TheUntamedEarth Moments image for the month of September 2016 and now a part of the Gallery by the same name on To contribute images and or articles, pl refer to the GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION on the site.
