Your photo work is very purposeful and you seem to be following a theme and trend which works very well. A good way to re-learn something you already knew in another way.


The selection of lantana by way of its colours is once again just perfect for the subject -- our favourite Plain Tiger, Pankaj.
I like your rather unusual perspective here. Gives a different quality to the presentation. Very sharp focus and excellent details.
Well done and thanks for sharing.
