Areca-nut fruit – summer colours

IMG_20160303_132607800This is a picture of the ripe berries of an areca nut tree (paakku). These berries are a favourite of cuckoos, which perch on the stalks and eat the berries with their beaks. Beautiful colour and the melody of the cuckoo – thanks to this tree. Picture shot at Mylapore.
