This is an image of the Chukar Partridge shot in Ladakh. In Indian and Pakistani culture this bird symbolises intense, often unrequited love and is thought to be in love with the moon and gazes at it constantly.
"When I beheld thy face mournful, lady, I wandered restlessly o'er the world, Thy face is like the moon, and my heart like the chakor" - translated from a Bengali song, have no idea which one or how popular.
I haven't been well enough to get out and take photos of the forest and wye this autumn beyond the pond, so here's some favourites from last year.
Including the perfect shot of Tintern Abbey I'd been wanting to get for years! https://sophia.pictures/2018/11/15/tintern-in-fall/ °
Our resident Brush Turkey (also known colloquially as a Bush Turkey), has discovered my new bird feeder. It spent a lot of time scratching around at the base, but then jumped up to eat the seed (the two regular Currawongs had already cleared out the sultanas).
