Snail on Leaf:

Close up of snail on leaf image spotted at my back yard. We all come across these and many other creatures but a very few make use of converting these casual small critters into a good photographic subject. Sensing the danger due to movements and distractions caused by me it retracted its body into the shell and I had to wait for a few minutes to make its way and move so that I could capture the whole body and the movement. At last snail won the race as I ran out of time and patience and be contented with the one what I captured. Lesson learnt is “Patience pays”.

Inner Beauty of Flamboyant:-

Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant tree’s vivid red/vermilion/orange/yellow flowers and bright green foliage make it an exceptionally striking sight.

Delonix regia is a species of flowering plant from the Fabaceae family,Caesalpinioideae subfamilia, noted for its fern-like leaves and flamboyant display of flowers. In many tropical parts of countries around the world it is grown as an ornamental tree and in English it is given the name Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant. It is also one of several trees known as Flame tree.

In India it is known as Gulmohar (Hindi and Urdu -‘Gul’ means ‘Flower’ and ‘Mohr’ is ‘Peacock’) thus the name suggests a spectacular show of color, like the extraordinary colors of a peacock’s tail.
