I spent three delightful days over the weekend traveling through the Eastern Ghats of Andhra Pradesh in search of butterflies and birds. We got ample sightings of both (as well as a few mammals). In total, we covered about 500 kms through three districts, East Godavari, Khammam and Vishakapatnam.

Spring finally came to my garden so I went exploring with my oft neglected macro lens. This is one of the things I found. Not perfect I know.

Daisy Cutters

An extremely common flower photographed a billion times by a million photographers! But it still makes an interesting subject. Perhaps, the very reason for its popularity? I shot this handheld and so the focus is not exactly spot on. The photo is also cropped from the original.

The Fly

This is a photo shot about a month back. I did not post this until now as I wasn’t very sure if it worked or not. You can say that I’ve changed my mind a little. Of course, it is not a perfect macro being as it was my first and only try so far of an insect macro. With hindsight, using a tripod and increasing the dof would have made the photo better imo.
