    Tutari flowering as dusk

    Rhamphicarpa is a flowering herb common in fields and open grounds. Its flowers open only between dusk and dawn, as they are pollinated exclusively by nocturnal moths. The plant is called 'Tutari' in...

    Metallic flea beetles mating

    This was a tough scene to photograph. It was wet and very windy, with low light. Moreover, this was at a low angle just above the surface of water, so I could not take any solid support from below. I...

    Good details. Again, nice use of shallow selective DoF. Another option (if possible) would have been to get the eyes & antennae parallel to the sensor - that would give another perspective with the...

    Lovely. Very nice use of shallow DoF. Did you try this at any other aperture values as well?

    Lovely find. Surprised you got such low DoF at f14... is it an effect created by the Raynox? I think this could be a glowworm larva rather than an adult female, but I'm not sure.

    As requested, here is a record shot of the sundew with the entire plant visible. This specimen was only 2-3 cm tall. This was clicked at the very wide aperture of f4, but it was clicked from a...

    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...

    Noctiluca scintillans photgraphed at the surface of a tide pool | Goa

    This is the tiny protist organism responsible for most instances of blue bioluminescence in sea water near the coasts. While...

    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...

    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,...
