These photos were taken at Borivili National Park. The fly was patient, and so was the green and yellow beetle. The moth definately looks like a fairy - sitting on a flowery stool, with an air of magic around it. The butterflies were fickle, and it was difficult to compose, focus and click before they flew away. Both the butterflies sucked the necter rapidly, moving from flower to flowe in a bunch, and then flying away. One guy who looked at us with our cameras almost pressed against the flowers went away by wisely telling his friend that we were indulging in "Micro" photography.
These were taken at Lohgad. The snail is under flash, and was hiding beneath a blade of grass that I was lucky enough to turn around.
This is a photo of another guy taking a macro. The bug is still pretty clear, which surprised me.
