Monsoon left with watery wetlands all over the low and shallow places during last year. One can observe dragonflies, waterbirds, damsels and what not, around these wetlands,so last year me and my friends were walking through the banks of this one of the wetlands and I found this died damsel floating on water surface with this never seen before arrangement or pattern of its four wings with beautiful droplets below them. While shooting this on 1:1 scale; I saw some movement in its head and was blown away at next moment when this small water bug [type of spring tail or (bourletiella arvalis)] kinda hatched the head of damsel and came out of it. There is a lot more behavior, activity that is happening at micro organism level which is completely unknown to us yet.I wonder sometimes, how nature comes up with such amazing things in front of us, I was composing wings and droplets in a frame and ended up witnessing some tiny yet extraordinary behavior of one brave arthropod.
