This year I have not been able to photograph as many butterflies as I’d have liked to but the dragonflies have been rather kind to me:) They’ve sat still allowing me to get my shots before they went in for the next kill. This was what I captured on my small bamboo patch.
The Pied Paddy Skimmer was resting on a Flax lily leaf. Although this dragonfly is supposed to be commonly found in our region, this is only the second time that I’ve seen and photographed the species. I think the black and white wings are unusually attractive.
Glint of gold in the afternoon sun. Not too sure about the name. Could be a Green Marsh hawk.
The Crimson-tailed Marsh hawk captured in the hot afternoon sun.
And talking about the afternoon sun always makes me think about enjoying the fruits from the garden at my parents’ house. We got these delicious guavas from the trees that my mother planted. No wonder the squirrels are feasting on them too!!
Chillies, hot and green. Known as bird’s eye chillies these are hot! But not as hot as Bhut jolokia, the hottest chillies in the world. In our region, people love to have these with their meals. We love the taste, the smell, and of course, the heat!
