    Indian Sundew

    The Indian Sundew (Drosera indica) is a tiny plant that traps and feeds on insects. The dew-like drops consist of a sticky mucilage secreted by the plant, and once an insect gets stuck, the plant...

    That's a tough question to answer. What's your budget? What do you wish to shoot? What conditions are you planning to use it in? What camera do you use?

    Sabyasachi - I think it is close to 80% of a crop, at least. I played around quite a bit with the darks & lights, and then re-adjusted temperature & saturation to true levels. I chose not to push the...

    Nice experiment with the space. The black area is negative space in this image, but this looks like a great image to add text to. :) I think increasing the saturation might bring out truer colours in...

    Would be very interested in knowing more about this lens from anyone trying it out. Looks ideal for someone trying to find middle ground between the 1:1 lineup and the MP-E 65.

    Nice shot. Lamarckii tends to often be very shy compared to the more common boscii, so getting a clean shot is not as easy.

    Mrudul - Those are the crabs antennae, angled backwards.

    Very interesting composition. I wonder if recovering the highlights from the lower portion will give the image a more uniform yellow border.

    Telling a story with a photo can be tough, and this is a nice attempt. I think this might have turned out a little better without the fill flash.

    Haven't seen this behaviour myself, but jumpers do produce their own silken threads - they use it like a harness before each jump, so that if they miss their landing, they can get back to the...

    Lovely. Observing ants is always fun, as there is a lot of behaviour to watch all the time. Agree that there is some negative space at the tops, and moving the camera slightly downward would have...

    Thanks all.

    Sabyasachi & Mrudul - I saw 2 pairs, and I was told there are 6 pairs in the park this year. The jackal population within the park has apparently now exploded to a very high density,...

    Sarus crane family foraging

    Keoladeo NP, Bharatpur, Jan 2019

    Watching this Sarus crane family foraging was half an hour well spent. Found this in a corner that didn't have many people, so I had all the time in the world to...

    Sabyasachi - Yes, Sapanmori. I was there for a WWF meeting, and the field office is right next to Sapanmori. Did a bit of birding and photography at the side during breaks. I must say I...

    Grey-bellied Cuckoo

    As with my last few bird posts, I thought of continuing to post a few bird images that may be examples of non-ideal techniques that sometimes work on-the-spot.

    Here is a grey-bellied cuckoo,...

    Anteaeolidiella sea slug

    I spend the major amount of my photography time with seashore life nowadays, so I'll be posting some of my observations here (most of them are usually record images). :)

    Lovely details. Can we see a wider crop? I feel the tight crop draws attention to the out-of-focus parts. I guess you did not want to sacrifice shutterspeed for a narrower aperture.

    Thanks all.
    Sabyasachi - Maybe around 8 am... But on the shadow side of the valley, so in low light. This bird is up and about even in the coldest weather... even when it is snowing heavily. :)

    Hi Anil ji,

    I'm not familiar with the lens, but f8 and 1/800 would usually be enough for a sharp shot as far as hand-holding goes. The berries look perfectly sharp to me, and the eye looks...
