Birds of Kenya

A lovely couple with love for nature, what a lovely combination! Ruchee and Sanket, an Ahmedabad based zealous photographer couple has presented us their amazing aerial photography album. Ruchee who hails academically and professionally from an Architectural background was always inclined towards subtle forms of arts, colors, and nature.  Her passion in photography also lured her to travel across environs of nature with her architectural sense aiding in her creative compositions. Sanket, having grown up in Kenya has an old connection with nature and wildlife, his learning and observations in nature over his tours as a child remains ingrained even today. Together, their holidays are best spent as travel bugs, discovering and exploring new places with their cameras to keep themselves submerged in nature over all their free time.

The series of pictures are birds from Kenya from one of their travels. The colors of the birds from the diverse country which they traveled are indeed a delight to watch. As the landscape changes, so do species of birds and their colors. There are over 1000 species of avifauna in Kenya, which sure gave them a long bird watching experience too.
