    Irrespective of the odds and barriers placed against them, the 'wild' thrives around human habitation in urban jungles.
photographed with the cellphone, so lacks the quality we desire.

    Tried a wide angle lens today to get a different perspective.
As once the web is constructed, no second chance of shooting of a spider's work in progress. Will try something else tomorrow during its act.

    Thankfully, the spider reappeared for me to spend some quality time in lockdown with it.
    That is me watching the rat race around me and wondering 'is this what we are living for?'

    Thankfully, a friendly neighborhood made an appearance today. 
Hopefully, it keeps coming back to make this lockdown worthwhile at home.
C&C welcome :-)
    The dark clouds have engulfed our times but there would be sunshine at the end of it. Hold on tight!
Stay safe.
    The snowstorm is here... but dig in little deep and hold on!

    Is the bird really free when it soars in blue skies Or its mind cluttered by the thoughts of survival?
    It is all a little hazy but it would clear soon.

    Loved making some images of these amazing creatures that hang onto their webs fighting with the gushing wind continuously.
Thanks for viewing. 
Hope to be regular and catch up with the forum soon :-)
    Hope the veil of mist would vanish in thin air as we would be blessed by the light !
Hang in there...Wishing the best light to all CNPians in coming year. Happy new year !

    Though the River completely freezes on the surface, the water keeps flowing below it. Sometimes, it just breaks away like an animal trapped underwater to come to surface gasping for breath. Those braided streams onto the frozen river reminded me of that.

Thank you Vikas for inviting.
    This theme is just engrossing... and finally I got an image that I can post ! :-D

    Though, the trans-himalayan region looks all barren but one can't miss the forceful way of the streams that cut through these mountains adding life to this barren landscape.

    The mist tried hard to conceal the beauty of the thunderous waterfall, alas !
    The recent floods in assam and news of kaziranga submerged is heartbreaking :(
I wish these Rhinos and other wildlife there better cope with this and come out thriving again in the park.

    the fireflies light up the trees on earth and the stars do that with the sky. 
They glance at each other from faraway galaxies whenever the oncoming clouds part for few moments.
    The Fireflies hang in chunks to the leaves. The breeze sway them around resulting in these kind of beautiful patterns...
    Your C&C welcome.

    This is how you really see them until them come out in open.
    Terns are slow on the wings but very erratic and fast while diving out to fish ! Thee randomness of their acrobats makes it fun to watch them.
    I am still in hangover of the CNP meet and those wonderful 4 days spent together in like minded people's company.
Thank You, RD, Vikas, Ravi, Ganesh for pulling out this one beautifully ! 
Cheers... until we meet again !

    Thanks for viewing.
    It is always good to see the egrets and herons pausing their stance while looking out for fish to catch.
Kept the bluish tone of the cold evening just after sunset to get the feeling of the place and time.
Your C&C welcome :)

    This is naturally monochromatic due to mist and clouds at the fort top. 

Thanks for looking and C&C.

    Normally, this is how you would come across the dragonflies and damselflies while trekking in the forest. 
Wanted to depict everything is part of trees, leaves, branches and wings standing out !
C&C welcome.
    This image of an Indian Eagle owl captured against the gathering clouds late in the evening.
Having shot this owl to my hearts content, this 'goodbye' image of this owl before I left Chennai really made me happy.
I wished if the horns (ear tufts) of this magnificent owl could be erect for this shot, but alas. 
None the less, still like this. 
On lighter note, can you guess which way is owl looking?  

Thanks for viewing...

    Even when the small birds take refuge in around human, they still have to be wary of their predators...
Such a frame from a casual temple visit...

    One more of a slow shutter experience to capture the rhythmic movement of wings with the randomness of birds flights.
    The flamingos when start running for taking off, its  a sight to see.
The clutter of flock, the rush of the moment and slow shutter to record the chaos.

    The opportunity was there and for the fortunate me, the 6th just peeped outta its place.
Hope you will be able to find it.
    Thanks to CNP. This is something I am completely learning from CNPians. Looking at those awesome triptychs, tried my one here.
C&C Welcome.

    This Great Indian hornbill was hiding and was difficult to see through the dense bushes between us.
I was imagining to shoot only the beak part through the narrow gap. 
Finally when it moved its head up a little for a small yawn, I got to see the full beak which perfectly fitted the gap.

Your C&C and interpretations welcome.
    As the light goes down, hundreds of these fireflies would lit up the surroundings. 
One such try to get it in its habitat.
    the time when the sun goes down, and the moon rises slowly in the sky, is the time to get back to home.

    The adventure within the man is to conquer its own fears.

Not sure if this image fits the forum here but I would leave that to you/mods to decide.
    My experimentation with slower shutter on birds continues here. Most of the times, I had tried it moving the camera along the flight of the bird to slower down their movement. 
In this case, the birds were stationary and I panned my camera in order to get a flowing stream like effect on the birds.
Egrets have added the white stream, grass for green and brown grass and civilization behind adding different colors. 
One bird flew during this exposure in BG and that had added that extra white there which kind of distract a little.
Hope you like this.
C&C Welcome.
    The flying flock of birds is my recent obsession for trying out slower shutter speed. The kind of images captured depends on the flying patterns, kind of birds, their wing movements, and their relative positions from each other. Add to it, if the sky is graceful, the clouds formation. Here is one such try where the outcome was representable IMO.
Thanks for your time and inputs :-)

    as the rising clouds engulfed the hills, the drama of sun and clouds happened. The sun tried hard to pierce through the clouds to reach the earth.
Heres one such scene from the drama.
    This snail was resting in morning light. What I liked is the exact leaf pattern in background complimenting the one snail was resting.
I thought, out of focus background adds to it and hence shot this one. hope you like it.
    This drama in sky unfolded in sky when the sunset colors spread their hues over the dark clouds. 
The tall tree is what I needed to add to this drama.
Thanks for looking.

    This picture is made last sunday when I visited Kaas. Using a wide angle for macros was really challenging and I loved it.
Thanks to Ganesh for a wonderful blog and images on kaas, which inspired me a lot.

    The river terns at Ranganthittu Bird sanctuary were busy calling out in the evening for each other. 
I feel sad for these as in the mating seasons all the photograohers go and disturb them, the boatman even told us that he shoos away the female incubating eggs so that the photographers/ornithologists (?) can see the eggs. I had to shout at him and asked to take the boat away from that rock. I hope the people get their common sense back and behave well when in nature.

    This picture was made at Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary. The morning sun rising just above lake, I have got the painted stork at perfect position. 
Spent quite a time to get its pose well against the sun, and finally this was it. Converted to BnW.
This image has also reached in semi-final of Voila Wildlife photographer of the year competition for 2011. Hope you ppl like it.
    The shallow DOF effect of a damselfly holding to twig.
    Just after the sunset, a flock of egrets kept coming into Ranganthittu bird sanctuary. 
After entering the sanctuary, they will make a round around before finally settling down near/at their nests.
I thought of going with slow shutter to capture the movements of egrets which were forming a nice pattern over the other still birds at the lake.
