THIS IS THE THIRD TIME THE SNAKE HAS THROWN MY PIC OUT OF THE GALLERY TODAY. IT'S BECOMING RATHER OBVIOUS WHO YOU ARE SO STOP YOUR LOW LIFE TACTICS!!!
Added at 1.15 AM India time- after a dinner with friends.
TO THE SNAKE who has written as a 'GUEST' : "So, only "Thumbs Up" are allowed? Why do we have to look at your photos everyday?"
Unlike you I do NOT indulge in THUMBS UP pressing to promote my pics and throwing out BETTER pictures!!! If you care to notice, my pictures and those of others regularly receive comments from other members & friends UNLIKE yours which come up on the FIRST position WITHOUT enough comments! Regarding your question, " why do we have to look at your pictures everyday" the answer is obvious unless you don't understand simple English! This is a DAILY community where members post EVERYDAY!
And no one is forcing you to look at my pictures if you don't like them ignore them but please don't ask stupid questions!
TO MY OTHER FELLOW DAILY MEMBERS: Dear friends, I once again thank you for your comments and support!
Today is a special day for me, my birthday, and would like to thank you all for your very supportive comments and inspiring pictures. This community rocks! I would also like to share a card my daughter Vinati made for me. . For those who don't know her, she's a Downs Syndrome child and is currently working at Om Creations, a sheltered workshop for the Developmentally challenged

The Indian giant squirrel, or Malabar giant squirrel, (Ratufa indica) is a large tree squirrel species genus Ratufa native to India. It is an upper-canopy dwelling species, which rarely leaves the trees, and requires "tall profusely branched trees for the construction of nests. It travels from tree to tree with jumps of up to 6 m (20 ft). When in danger, the Ratufa indica often freezes or flattens itself against the tree trunk, instead of fleeing. Its main predators are the birds of prey and the leopard. The Giant Squirrel is mostly active in the early hours of the morning and in the evening, resting in the midday. It is a shy, wary animal and not easy to discover
