Thanks everyone for the kind words and encouragement. I will redirect all credits to Ganesh for inspiring me on this.
@Nilanjan - its a Canon 17-40F4L
@Harsha - next time let me mix it up with some fruits
@Santosh - i did try 17mm but it looks way too wide and the subject "might" have become even smaller - thats one big challenge with wideangle remote photography. This i guess is at 40mm
@Mahesh - apparently as this is the first try - no use of flash or what so ever - just used a polariser to cut the glare off the rocks and get some rich colors.
@VMR - answers to your question
1. Leave a natural looking rag in a bundle at the spot in one weekend and next weekend use the bundle to camouflage the setup. There will be less panic from the wildlife.
<SK>Camo cloth is something we need to look out for. Here i used a couple of plants to cover lens and tripod.
2. The best tripods for this setup is the Gorillapod.
<SK> Picked up one just last week but didnt get to use it for this one as i had to remove the lens plate to put it on the gorillapod
3. Time we got some natural looking fibreglass moulds done to mimic natural things. Like a rock boulder, a heap of clay or dung to setup things naturally.
<SK>Myself and Ganesh did discuss about it during our "waiting period" while something turned up. We did have reference to the BBC Dungcam, Bouldercam, Trunkcam stuff.
