Just after the announcement of this year’s Oscars, I had an argument with a friend over which was a better movie Avatar or The Hurt Locker(watch it if you haven’t!!).  At  some point, my friend puts forth, “Actually, it is surprising that a person like you who is so interested in biology(I left bio in 10th grade :P) didn’t get impressed by Avatar’s imaginative flora and fauna. “. I was not impressed;  we tend to ignore things which are grander,more spectacular and beautiful in real life than reel life. My stand was strengthened by the spectacle I saw last Saturday(15.05.2010) – migration of butterflies( tigers, crows and the egg-flies). Here I present to you my attempt at capturing this mind blowing event.

With Galibore being the first trip out of my canon 50mm lens, I ended up capturing more of birders in various moods than birds.
