It was heavenly few minutes just when sun starting showing up on the horizon and the first rays met the misty lake full of ducks!
Truly magical moment!

Definately View Large On Black
It was sheer pleasure to see the robber fly catch the moth in mid air and then take it to a nearby leaf. As the moth was bit heavy the robber fly could not take it too far away from me and i followed it for few meters couple of times (in dense grass!!) and got this!
Couple of interesting close-ups in comments as usual :)
Taken last Saturday early morning.. in my backyard again!
1. Our friend immediately starts digging into the moth.. you can also see the coiled proboscis of the moth and some kind of "eye contact" between killer and the kill!
2. That's an impressive tail

View Large On Black
Guess this is as sharp as it gets... Very satisfying shot as i had to follow the butterfly for 15-20 mins to get it settled and go REALLY close for this kind of shot!
Got few dew drops on the legs as well in the shallow DOF as a bonus :D
This is first time i have managed to capture the circled proboscis (that's what its called.. thanks to google: www.naturenorth.com/butterfly/english/01%20body.html)
here is an outtake where i can cover the whole butterfly at least in bokeh

Saw this wall with the small bush growing from the cracks.. impulsive capture i must say!
I know its difficult to know that its a wall.. my bad.. but i love the way its coming out of the crack and the green moss growth on the wall!
Bricks / flowers welcome..

Something totally different than my usual photographic subject.. wanted to take a photo for "Metal-On-Metal" subject for this week's DPChallenge, and stumbled on this rusting piece of metal equipment on Kalyan-Panvel road on the weekend trip!
Few more photos below.
I love urban decay.. get lot of rust :D

The White-throated Fantail Flycatcher has the apt name of Nachan (नाचण) or Dancer in Marathi, which is befitting as the movements of bird gives the impression of a delicate dancer.
Photo taken in Kalyan today!
