The Magic of Mangalajodi
On Day 4, let’s go to Mangalajodi to enjoy birdlife with Avinash Khemka.
Avinash Khemka is an Odisha based amateur wildlife photographer. He has been photographing wild habitats in India since January 2013. In the last seven years, he has done more than 75 trips to different parts of India and abroad. He is into photography of different genres, viz. wildlife (mammals, birds, macro), landscape and street.
On his first ever visit to the Mangalajodi wetlands, he was mesmerized by the magical beauty of the habitat as well as the jostling flocks of birds that seemed to carpet the scape and the skies. This pristine bird paradise that holds one of the world’s greatest
conservation stories in its folds, beckoned him again and again. As Avinash says – “on every visit I wished that I could just stay back and remain immersed in the soothing pristinity of nature’s canvas.” With state-of-art photography equipment to aid him, he began to capture the avian diversity and landscapes in his lens, through the seasons, year after year. In the last seven years, he has spent around 150 to 200 days in Mangalajodi, in all seasons.
