Tadashi and I went parahawking again -- this time for sunset. Although we weren't leaving until 4 pm, we weren't too keen on leaving the Maya Devi "compound", as it was Holi. Holi is a Hindu holiday during which kids and young adults throw colored powder and water (plain and colored) at each other. There are kind adults who will gently give you a tika. Tadashi and I were both blessed with a tika by the Maya Devi restaurant manager, Nani.
This time I got a lot of photo tips from Tadashi before we took off, so my pictures are better, especially those of the birds. We went up with Bob and Kevin again. The sequence below shows Kevin coming in for a snack.
One time both Bob and Kevin tried to come in for the same snack. I was happy to have caught that on film (as it were).
The light was great for landscape shots of Tadashi and Brad. I probably could have weeded these down a bit, but I just like them all too much. So you get to looks at a lot of them (but hey, at least I didn't put up all the 360 shots I took).
Because of the wind, we had to land on the end of the lake, in the middle of a rice field with grazing cows and horses. Tadashi and Brad are in the bottom left corner, strafing the cows.
