~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 🇮🇳🇩🇮🇦🇳🔸🇵🇴🇳🇩🔸🇭🇪🇷🇴🇳 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 🐤 🐦 WAITING FOR A CATCH AT BACKWATERS OF ALAPPUZHA , KERALA 🐦 🐤 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Indian pond heron or paddybird (Ardeola grayii) is a small heron. It is of Old World origins, breeding in southern Iran and east to Pakistan, India, Burma, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. They are widespread and common but can be easily missed when they stalk prey at the edge of small water-bodies or even when they roost close to human habitations. They are however distinctive when they take off with bright white wings flashing in contrast to the cryptic streaked olive and brown colours of the body. Their camouflage is so excellent that they can be approached closely before they take to flight, a behaviour which has resulted in folk names and beliefs that the birds are short-sighted or blind. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ All images are subject to ©copyright No repost, regram or reproduce without prior permission All rights reserved Indianpondheron Paddybird Birds Nature Birdphotography Birdlover Kerala GodsOwnCountry Alappuzha Alleppey Convexrevolution Indianphotographer Instabirds Photographers_of_india Vasco Backwaters Green Greenery Birdsofinstagram Birdphotography Naturewatch Birdwatching

THE OLD ALLEPPEY (ALAPPUZHA) PORT, KERALA ~~ Alappuzha (Alleppey) was one of the busiest ports and trade centers of Kerala. Alappuzha, a part of Travancore, was ruled by Rajas of Erstwhile Travancore before India's independence. After the arrival of the Portuguese, Dutch and English traders, Vizhinjam, Kollam, Travancore and Purakad were the main ports of Erstwhile Travancore through which foreign trade flourished. The decline of the Port of Purakkad necessitated the rehabilitation of the traders for which Alappuzha was selected as a port and an infrastructure was developed. The port was opened to foreign traders in 1792. ~~ Kerala GodsOwnCountry Alappuzha Traders Alleppey Port Beach Portuguese Dutch English Convexrevolution Indianphotographer Beachlife Raja Sea Bridge Ironbridge  Green Greenery Portsofeyeem Travancore Naturewatch
