wow such a lively image... its refreshing.. an alert marmot on the bed of flowers! tfs!
nice image, but unfortunately this is not Monarch. Monarch is not seen in India, however it's cousin species occur. This one is in fact a mimic of the Plain Tiger. It is a female of Danaid Eggfly.
fantastic image... amazing DOF! I like it a lot... the eye and the face shows excellent sharpness and details! The foreground and background makes the frog's head pop out! it's almost 3D... thanks for sharing!
superb capture... im visiting Mississauga this weekend, hope to see some nice birds! :) your gallery is excellent! tfs!
fantastic use of light here! its as if the spider itself is glowing!
fantastic documentation. it's Monkey Puzzle, a beautiful Lycaenid butterfly.
beautiful composition, but looks like a tight crop in my opinion. it's actually an Owlfly and not a dragonfly.
it's a Common Cerulean sitting on it's Host Plant - Vigna trilobata (most probably) and those ants look like Myrmicaria brunnea.
it is undoubtedly an amazing picture! beautiful, alert pose, lovely subtle background and a nice contrast in the image. It is a Jumping Spider, I think it is Telamonia dimidiata, female but can not be sure by this angle. It belongs to Salticidae. Spiders can be easily IDed by their eye pattern up till Family. If you compare a Crab Spider (family Thomisidae) with Jumping Spider (family Salticidae) you will know the difference. this is an amazing image, tfs!
superb picture.... the prey is a flying Termite, most common during first showers and then they keep coming until post-monsoon. The spider is Peucetia viridans.
