Definitely had a white rump, so I guess this is L. striata and not L. malacca like I originally thought.
Hypothetical ID. Feeding in the canopy much like an oriole.
Again, hypothetical, but it does have the chestnut underparts, light head, darker back. Lacking blue at the base of the bill, though.
These were ubiquitous in Kerala, but hard to see, as they were usually calling from way up in the canopy.
I was really happy to see these golden-backed woodpeckers. This species was pretty common, but such different coloration than any of the woodpeckers I've seen before!
Possibly a messed up sunbird, but I'm not sure. Curved bill, same size as a small sunbird, flitty like a sunbird, but the coloration is super weird.
Beautiful, common, tricky to photograph!
Cute little lizard on the way to Chembra. Calotes?
Interesting South American plant that curls its leaves up when you touch them. Growing everywhere in disturbed areas of Wayanad.
Another weedy, minty-looking flower.
Quite large, like 15 cm long. Growing near a small stream.
Notice the motion blur. They were coming right for us!
Strange little flower growing in a seep.
Tiny and uncharismatic: my favorite kind!
Male on the left, female on the right. There was a langur hanging around too but I didn't get to see it.
Apparently the black throat spot is a distinguishing feature.
Giant hornets and liberworts. What's not to like?
