A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed, and is, thereby, a true manifestation of what one feels about life in it's entirety. . . I believe in photography as one means of achieving an ultimate happiness and faith! - Ansel Adams

Ovalekar Wadi - abode of the butterflies (Part 2)

Common Jezebel Butterfly

Our second outing at Ovalekar Wadi (read about the place and our first trip here) also proved to be somewhat of a damp squib. The light, though, was excellent this time around. But, the chill in the morning resulted in the butterflies taking a bit too long to wake up from their slumber and busy themselves with the task of looking out for breakfast!


Drops of Pearl

Nonetheless we managed to sight the following butterflies: Great Orange-tip, Common Jezebel, Common Bush Brown, Common Sailor, Skipper, etc. We also got some nice macro shots of flowers (with dew drops), caterpillar, dragonfly, etc. I guess we will need more outings to be able to explore the near 100 species of butterflies that can be seen at Ovalekar Wadi.
