An insect is sitting on my son's thumb! It sat for a long time and looked comfortable! It was cleaning itself...its back, front ....Interesting to watch!

Try to watch the video in full screen.  You can see the Fort also in the background.

RENU: Thank you, Renu! Here, son was the photographer! I had thought he had gone after monkeys! Many were there. But this one came!

Welcome back, Renu, to Chennai. Hope your place didn't suffer much.

The contrast between this green and black is too good. It's cool that you were able to take such clear pics of an insect that generally has no patience for posing for photographs :)

Wow! Cool video and excellent focus on the cleansing bug. Generally I scare about insects when they touch with my ski, but he is good at handling and both seem comfort.

Sandhya said...

JEEVAN: I think so too! He too was fascinated by the insect!

Nice video featuring the beetle :) Interesting to watch how busy it is trying to clean and then starts walking :) The fort looks good in the background :)

Thanks for sharing Sandhyaji :)

Take Care,
Sai

Sandhya said...

ASHOK: Yes, they are amazing if you watch them closely and if you are interested to watch!


SAI CHARAN: The insect cleans itself like a cat does! The fort was interesting. Post will come sometime!
