[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Its Just a green Bottle fly, some bug, a couple of ants at that..But sitting together on a smallish strand of flower buds swaying in the wind on top of a rain washed mountain it is in reality a wonderful miniature ecosystem.

Come to think of it in this age of Nano, people have suddenly discovered and are paying a lot of attention to the unique attributes and complexities of these small wonders. The wonders at the bottom of the pyramid.

The thing I was wondering while taking this snap was How was the fly balancing itself in stiff wind on this small flower and having a meal at the same time. A Trapezoid act in itself. But you add to the complexity another trapezoid artist in the form of another insect
with which it has no communication and you the most intricate and complex of problems. Of course they have the luxury of flying off at will...

Well I couldnt manage a snap till the wind relented a bit...And at the top of the mountains of the Western Ghats of India during the Monsoons the wind and rain hardly oblige..
