Remarks :They were 15 in number and stayed near our base camp for 2 hours feeding actively at around 4:30 pm. They were coming to drink from a narrow stream and waterhole from where we were collecting water. One of them flew exactly 2 feet from me and another was sitting at about 4 feet from me. However, the weather condition was poor, and soon it started to drizzle. Only 2 pics are worth sharing among 150 pics taken at different settings. - AC
