@Chevy lover: I liked the first shot of yours at the Lake palace.
@shaju: Beautiful butterfly shot there! You and HW are on the fast track.
@anirban: Brilliant capture!

@TG: How are you using it inverted? The primitive way like I use, or you have a mount?

This one's dedicated to TG. Hope he'll come back to the world of colors!

If you look at the reflection of the camera within the eye, you can see that he is holding the lens inverted - the mount is facing the subject. The reversed lens acts as a super macro lens.

You can read here how I did something similar.

Butterflies again!

Spotted this butterfly with colorful green drops on it. Anyone has an idea as to what they mean and if they were made by the butterfly itself?

The next one (black and red) was spotted by Shaju and we had a tough time trying to photograph it as it was way too restless and the wings were just fluttering away to glory .

Well can't really say whether those are dew drops reflecting the green color of the leaves and grass. But, it's one hell of a shot. Kudos!!!

Default Just Another Day In Life.

With so much we get in our daily life we fail to appreciate simple things in life. Water. Being a woman, many of them have to walk several kilometers daily just to fetch water for daily needs. Something we often waste and don't appreciate. So much hard work and we are fighting for "Women's Rights". Think about it...

@BBlost, hope you did NOT view the sun through the viewfinder.

Is there anything wrong to view the evening sun directly for a few seconds? Or is it the viewfinder causing some problem?

Its been very dusty the past few days and by evening the sun looses it brightness/ intensity.
By 6:00 PM the sun disappears. Not as in a sunset, but it just disappears in the sky.

cleverMax, if you focus a camera on the sun in the middle of the day, The bright image can actually destroy the camera. Never look at a bright sun without correct protection.

Thanks guys ! HW, you atleast got that black & red, my 10 or more shots of the same are all blurred. I can see you in those green drops, lovely and clear shots. I find over 90 shots of the butterflies from that day and all of them are manual focus and 60% blurred !! Its tough to manual focus on a 300mm zoom lens avoiding the blurr. Hard way to learn ! I think I need a macro dedicated lens. Requesting my bank to give me an interest free loan for 5 years ! Here are few on a random order.
This is through very thick mesh !
