This is a snap of a grasshopper taken in the morning. I played with the aperture and used a flash to get the right part into notice.

Lizard V/S Wasps Photo by Rodrick Lal — National Geographic Your Shot

 

Just today while looking a nest of wasps, I was surprised to see a lizard in close proximity to the nest. In fact, the lizard is so close to the wasps that it is within a stinging distance of the wasp! I wonder if lizards and wasps might not have a special relationship with each other!

The Wasp Factory 2 Busy Wasps Photo by Rodrick Lal — National Geographic Your Shot

This is a snap of one of the two wasp nests that I saw yesterday. I used a 55-250mm lens to get the snap because I did not really want to get stung! I had to use the inbuilt flash because the lighting was not really good. You might be able to see a few wasps looking towards the camera with curiously. Yes and if you look closely you might be able to see the honey like substance inside some of the cells. I guess there is a purpose behind all this movement!

Spider, spider, where is your sting? Photo by Rodrick Lal — National Geographic Your Shot

 

This is a snap of what I believe to be spider I might have seen the previous week. I had just sprayed the plants in the verandah when I saw this spider perched on an Aloe vera plant leaf drying himself. The true beauty of the snap comes out when you zoom the snap! This snap was taken today with an 18-55 EFS lens and no tripod was used. Hope you like the snap! Yes, this was a tiny spider slightly bigger than a grain of wheat!
