Weekend Reflections/Scene From A Resort

The other day we were at a resort not too far away from the city. Some of the ponds and this particular lake in the property, was a delight to see. Without this meme, I doubt if I would have looked at reflections the way I see them any water body, big or small, seeking and seeing little fairy-tale wonders in puddles and droplets of rain...

The Yellow Pansy Butterfly

Ever since I started to blog, I have been photographing the Pansy butterflies. The commonly seen are the Lemon Pansy/Junonia lemonias, the Grey pansy/Junonia atlites, the Chocolate Pansy/ Junonia iphita, and the Peacock Pansy/Junonia almana. The Blue Pansy and the Yellow Pansy had eluded me so far. But the other day as we took a walk around the resort that we'd gone to, this beautiful butterfly begged to be photographed!! But as soon as the shutter was ready to be hit, it'd fly away and later come back. In these hurried shots, the beautiful blue eye spots (absent in males, prominent in females) can just barely be seen.

Returning home I checked out my book on butterflies by Isaac Kehimkar and found out that this butterfly is commonly found in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. It's an active butterfly which flies close to the ground and prefers sunny places. Now maybe the Blue Pansy won't take long to show up too!:)

Weekend Reflections/ Through The Living Root Bridge

Today's picture shows glimpses of the stream from the Living Root Bridge. The intricate criss cross of these ficus roots makes an interesting capture, don't you think?
