Superb. I loved the brilliant colors which have come so well. Once I captured a very colorful spider with similar colors.

Sandhya said...

PN SUBRAMANIAN: I took this picture at Dakshina Chitra, on ECR, Chennai. I nearly stamped on it...it was camouflaged on the steps very well! It has already lost/broke one horn!

Ashwini Sriram said...

Absolutely beautiful.

Swaram said...

Woww.. that colours!

Ugich Konitari said...

Looks like a Kathakali Scorpion ? :-))

Usha Pisharody said...

What clarity! Which is this insect?

Sandhya said...

ASHWINI SRIRAM: Yes! It do look beautiful!


SWARAM: All light colours, except a patch or two!


UGICH KONITARI; Gray coloured!


USHA PISHARODY: Some sort of beetle, I think. It was not visible at all. It moved slightly and I and my friend saw/noticed it!

Bikramjit said...

KParthasarathi said...

Sujatha Sathya said...

Destination Infinity said...

I am ok with any insect as long as they don't fly. I am afraid of 'flying insects'.

It is so beautiful.

kanagu said...

It really looked like very professional photograph :)

So nice :)

Sandhya said...

BIKRAM: Thank you, Bikram!


KAVITA: Thank you, Kavita!


KPARTHASARATHY: Yes, it was camouflaged very well. I and my friend, noticed it accidentally. Then started clicking!


SUJATHA SATHYA: Isn't it beautiful. We bent down and admired for a long time before clicking! I took it in a paper and placed in the sand in a corner so that no one stamped on it. Lovely creature!


DESTINATION INFINITY: I don't like flying things flying near my face, even mosquitoes! Yuck!


BK CHOWLA: Thank you, Chowlaji!


KANAGU: Thank you, I took it from my mobile camera! It looks lovely, isn't it?!

SM said...

wordsndreamz said...

You have captured it so well! So vibrant!

ashok said...

wow..almost merging with the floor!

Varunavi said...

Beautiful,may be in the list of endangered species...

kanagu said...

People used to say that a picture is not based on the camera but the hand which holds it. You are a good photographer :)

Sandhya said...

SM: Thank you, SM!


WORDSNDREAMZ: Thank you, Smitha!


ASHOK: Yes, it was not visible in the beginning. It moved a bit and we noticed it!


VARUNAVI: Maybe! The area is full of trees. That might be the reason these creatures are still surviving!


KANAGU: Thank you, Kanagu! 2 Kilo weight yeriaachchu!

Roshmi Sinha said...

Guarded Anonymity said...

Hi Sandhya! I'm so sorry to barge in on your post with an unrelated query, but I noticed you commented on a post saying you had been to a wedding on the theosophical society campus? I wanted to ask you about that. If you could send me your email Id or email me at superme_in (at) yahoo (dot) com, I would really appreciate it! I look forward to hearing from you!

R. Ramesh said...

insecta..supera pidichitingo ji..

Prasoon said...

whem I saw it, I thought it's a spider. Spiders fascinate me. May be bcz I grew up watching spiderman and I always wanted to be the one. I still want to :p
But I think it is not a spider :(
Nevertheless beautiful pic.... Love the clarity :) :)

Sandhya said...

INDIAN HOME MAKER: As I had written in the earlier replies, I would have missed it if it hadn't moved a bit! It blended with the surroundings beautifully!


GUARDED ANONYMITY: I had attended the wedding some 17-18 years back and I don't remember anything else about it.


RAMESH: Thank you, Ramesh!


PRASOON: Welcome to my blog, Prasoon!

It is a sort of beetle, I think.

Spiderman? Everybody, even I, dream about being a spiderman!

Thank you!

Christy said...

gosh what a beautiful creature

Sandhya said...

CHRISTY: Welcome to my space, Christy!

I still remember the insect! It was sitting/slowly moving on the steps. I must have been looking at the ground while stepping down. Otherwise it wouldn't have been visible. Blended with the surroundings!

Thank you!
