Wolf Spider (i think!!) killing baby mosquito.
Canon 1000D + Sigma APO-DG-MACRO-70-300+ Raynox DCR 250.
One of the toughest macro shots for me. Nikhil Walvekar pointed out this spider which was hanging upside down from leaves... when i captured it.. realized it was actually with the kill (its so small that you cannot make that out with bare eye!!).
Focusing was biggest problem (looking upword at the sky and focusing 1 mm at a time :D).. so Nikhil helped by supporing my elbows.. Fortunately i could get the wing and the eyes in the same plane of focus!!
This is ZERO CROP !! that's a bonus :)

This one is taken with 18-55 (kit lens)... hand held, no flash. Key is manual focus (lock focus to minimum distance and focus on the flower by moving your body!)
Who say's 18-55 can't give you good macro shot..

Full-moon setting on the hills on the foreground of Temghar dam lake.. what a view it was..
First rays of sun giving some color to the mountains and the water!!
Canon 1000D + Canon 18-55 kit lens + Wire-tripod rested on dam-pillars
EXIF: 28mm.f/13.ISO100.1sec exposure.
Early morning shot from Temghar dam this sunday with Amit Shindore and Pranav Peshwe.
I was lucky to get two buses crossing the bridge and taking the twisting road at the same time and was also lucky to be having my small wirepod with me :) (which costs some 5 USD but is priceless for me :)

Unexpected guest at Drushtikon 2011.
Clicked with Samsung ST100 (point and shoot) and with its inbuilt flast (without diffusion) during preparations of D11.
(wish i had held a white paper to diffuse light)
This guy freaked everyone out by sitting on the carpet... while i was kicking myself for not carrying my DSLR and Raynox.
But i think Samsung ST100 gave decent result!
