HAPPY TAMIL NEW YEARS DAY.

 

This confirms my view that the way we periceive things is highly subjective.

 

While we look at it as a beautiful Lotus bud, the dragon fly here looks at it as a mere landing pad before it goes on to its next location.

 

While I was focussing on photographing this bud, this dragonfly just popped into the frame and landed on it. I clicked a couple of shots and called out to my photography partner Prabhakaran to ask him to shoot some...but it was too late. The dragon fly had flown away.

 

Sometimes the angel of luck is by your side. You just have to thank her, and wish that she visits you once again.

 

Photographed with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, and Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8 IS USM L Lens and Canon EF 2X Extender. Handheld. Again a lot of you may think its a macro shot done with a macro lens. It was shot from about 10 feet away from the subject, at 400mm.
