Spring is in the air but a warmer spring than what one would wish for!  Nevertheless, the Rani Bagh is always pleasant in the morning.

Here are the pictures:

The heritage archway with the two grand baobabs - Adansonia digitata


Bronze scupture of the Prince of Wales with the heritage wood conservatory at the back


Beautiful old banyan tree.  Paradise flycatchers, barbets, night herons and myriad other birds can be seen in its branches

The poor, hapless deer in their stagnant water pool.  Such a crime to keep animals in the zoo.

Cute squirrel hunting for ants or bees in a flower of the Shaving Brush Tree - Bombax ellipticum

Spring leaves

Bat in couroupita tree

Exquisite and rare Gustavia Insignis, also called Gustavia superba

Strophanthus gratus flower

Amherstia nobilis on the wane

Fallen flower of Brownea grandiceps

Lovely staff bungalow!
