This photo is a taken in 2007 (originally posted here). Taken with the Pentax DA 50-200. The bird is a migratory one to this Uppalapadu Bird sanctuary, Guntur (My home town). It is said to be temporary home to 40 species of migratory birds from Siberia.
Was here in year 2003. Went by drive from Guntur in my new Wagon R then. Travelled via Macherla. Stayed over night at AP Tourism Motel. It was well maintained then. I had a wonderful camera then (Olympus C2100 aka UZI)
Ethipothala water falls are a visual treat. The more adventurous can explore the top or bottom of the falls.
