Quenching Thrist

When the sun gods showers their rays in the midst of May in Central India, they really become generous. With temperature touching late 40's every living cell requires water to quench its thirst. Could sight a thirsty Oriental Honey Buzzard perching near the water body. After few shots of close up portraits, the raptor winged its way to the water body to quench its thrist. Unfortunately the grass twigs obstructing the sight of a low angle photograph and had no option to stand on the gypsy to capture the moments.

The Crested Honey Buzzard, Pernis ptilorhynchus, is a bird of prey in the family Accipitridae which also includes many other diurnal raptors such as kites, eagles and harriers. This species is also commonly known as the Oriental Honey Buzzard.

The Honey Buzzard is a large bird of prey that is similar to the buzzard. It has got broad wings and a long tail. The plumage is very variable across all ages; typical adults are greyish-brown on its upperparts and whitish underparts. Mainly insect larvae of wasps and bees.
