Breakfast with butterflies
Unit No 31 Aarey Colony,Goregaon East
Got up very early this morning. And went past this checkpoint to the Bombay Natural History Society's Conservation Education Centre (BNHS CEC). Another two kilometers down the road into the beginning of the forest reserve of Sanjay Gandhi National Park.
Today was their annual 'Breakfast with butterflies' event.
We started with a kit and a briefing on the butterfly kingdom. Then we split into groups with a guide and went off into the forests.
I have never seen so many different butterflies and just simply so many of them.
At one point I felt like an intruder. I did not belong there. It was a magic land where humans should not go disturbing.
After the 1.5-hour trail through dense forest on a steep landscape we learnt that we had been walking through a very special butterly ecosystem.
Along the way, we met all kinds of spiders and a pit viper in our path that was very happy to be photographed by each one of us.
Of course there was a small turn in the trail that the guide ensured nobody took even by mistake. That would lead to leopard land!
Back at home and work now.
What a switch. Just a couple of kilometres away is the the mall infested strip of road where I live.
