Nice guess.. but these are not actually cod liver oil capsules or grapes or marble stones. These are those soft and watery chinese pearls that you can buy from the footpath for 10 rupees

Here is my pick for today. How many of you thought that cattle egret-One of the most common bird in our surroundings, Transforms so beautifully during its Breeding time. The major change is on crest, Beak and eyes hence a portrait.
This shot is from Ranganatittu. I went there for only this during the breeding season.

Enjoy!!!

Thanks

Do not buy it if you are not worried about Birds. It was around 55k i paid and got it from Shetala Camera Chennai. BTW Thats an incredible shot. TFS...

Here is another one from same place. Under Exposed by 2 full stops for getting the dark BG.

My Olympus E-500, 14-54mm & 40-150mm has completely become my backup camera. But my wife wants me to sell it. Right now I have kept it in office for emergency photo opportunities.

@sreerajunnithan - thanks man !
I am very much into shooting birds - so it wont be a waste for sure. When did you buy it ?
My budget is limited at 40 - 45k so I might need to wait for some time to let the prices drop OR get it from abroad via someone.
