Lovely to see a colorful image from you Ganesh, the monsoon feel comes across nicely. I like the scale of depiction, the raised wings of the insect actually makes it to stand out so much rather than tame one. The antennae (?) and the wings compliment so well. Reminds me of the recent Africa TV series where a lizard is hopping around a lion. I would not mind going in close by cropping.

A creative mind is a restless soul...

Amazing! The sense of scale is what sets this image apart. Hats off to your technical brilliance in handling the focus so accurately! take a bow ^^

David and Goliath :)

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside

Hi Ganesh, this is an absolute classic! the small insect makes this image for me. The lush green foliage adds its so well composed with the body of the snake merging into the background... thanks for sharing

Downright greedy you are Ganesh :) who would've wished for more in a frame which is already so full. And it's such a surprise when one opens up the image!! Great seeing and execution.

Hi Ganesh. It just amazes me how you have manage to capture this moment with so much care and attention to details, assuming that the fly would have given you probably a few seconds before taking off. A Very fascinating image for me.

Sorry, I am late to comment on this. I echo Nevil's words. This and the frog and rain drop are two of my favorites.
