This was at Ganeshgudi. I actually saw a pair, and when trying to take a photo they flew and sat at different trees. The male when deeper inside the forest and this female flew and sat at the topmost part of the tree. I did not want to miss the take off shot this time so waited looking through my viewfinder for sometime and finally it happened, it took off.
