Fish gulping for air

I snapped this photo in Chengdu’s Giant Panda Center. There are little ponds in the complex, with vividly colored fish who come near the surface every time tourists pass by.

Landing Procedures

June 20, 2011 – Pigeons hurling towards grains thrown by local people in the hope of catching the attention of tourists passing by their taverns. The grains were for sale and they made it really easy for travelers to immortalize some bird chasing moments. Back to Photo of the Day

May 27, 2011 – This is a lizard I noticed and chased for 10 minutes while Andra was herself chasing after a free Wi-Fi.

Parrots in Taj Mahal’s backyard

May 10, 2011 – Although quite shy at first because of our presence, the parents gradually got used to the tens of lenses pointed at them and started taking turns in feeding their chick. Back to “Photo of the day”
