Arunachal Pradesh!  
Two fantastic weeks in a remote corner of India. What can I say about that? It's been the trip of my life so far. Travelling with four awesome (and crazy) birders can be a little overwhelming since it's discovery at every step. At times, it was even a little embarrassing, but that's what I expected when I signed up to go with two top birders who've been birding for decades, a professional bird tour guide and an ornithologist. The untouched forests and the high himalayan passes were like travelling back in time to see the joy in nature.

I think I should write more about it in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, here's the cutest little creature I saw in the trip.

A pika!

I was stunned to see that someone like YOU, whom I consider pretty experienced, should post of feeling exactly the same way *I* do when I go on wildlife trips with others!

Waiting for more pictures as you find the time. Would love to see some of your landscapes too.

I'm glad you had a fantastic time (but why was it embarrassing?). That pika looks much like a dwarf rabbit.

> but why was it embarrassing?

Well, it's times like when a bird flew by and the others have quickly nailed on it's identity and I'm still thinking if it was even a bird that went by. :)

It looks like a rat or a miniature version of a hare.
Waiting for the pics.
